Dean Says College 
Education Needed 

The regular college program for 

li)44-4."i officially began with opening 

convocation this morning. Then' was 

• ii ol the usual remeetingi of 

friends accompanied by the exchange 
of news and gossip. There was aUK 
the usual "glad to be back" feeling 
and everyone seemed excited about 
getting into the swiig of things once 


The morning's program began with 
announcement! by Dean William L. 
Ifachmer, who also outlined plans for 
the observance of V-E Day. In a short 
talk Dean Machmer emphasized the 
place of MSC in the war ami pointed 
out that this college is an educational 
institution which is committed to the 
task :>f developing the whole man. 
In the life of any college, remarked the 
Dean, there are supplements to, but 
not substitutes for, academic achieve- 
ment and intellectual development. He 
stressed the point that equality of op- 
portunity and equality of result do not 
necessarily follow one another and 
cannot co-exist. 

Dean Machmer underlined the in- 

cessity of having educated | pie for 

the post war world. He pointed out 
that it was necessary for more stu- 
dents to return to their studies. 

Dr. Hugh I'. Baker, I'resident of 
MSC, extended a welcome to both new 
and old students. 

An enjoyable part of the morning's 
program was the singing of the Alma 
Mater and other college sontfs under 
the direction of Doric Alviani, head 
of the music department. 

President Baker 

the college opens its K2ml year, 

in the third year of the war, there are 
even greater opportunities than dur- 
ing the previous years of the war for 

aggressive service to the state ami 

tli« nation. We are all very proud of 

the record which this college is mab 
ing in the war with approximately 
•JToo members of our college family 

!'a< imni, and students in the 

ermed We are very humble 

when we think of thr K) members of 
tl"' college family who have given 
their lives on the war fronts over the 
world, <>r ted missing. 

The war record Of the college is the 
natural •• tult, in a way, of t!i,. Kind 

■'! educational program which the coi- 
ns developed over the yeai -. Tin:, 
program I. a. emphasized the impor 
rvice in ever) field of hu- 
rtivity. Tl i traditio i of . 

vice p'aces Lipo each one .,f us the 

obligatio i t.. make this colh-e a year 

if clea, t!'i king and hard work. 

Because of tl e philosophy of service 

• ■'"•'••,1 i , t! ,• work 

of the eo!'e jt ovei the years, we were 
read) wl ei th< wa ca ne to accept 
an acre 1 .- -ate I program for civilian 
students, to accept an Army Training 
Program, and to take responsibilities 
for i creased production of food in 

the state. The faculty of the College

Glad To Be Back 

"It's great to be here!*' How many times that thought has been 
uttered during the short time most of us have been on campus 
this war Indeed, how very wonderful it is to be here on campus 
friends, beautiful surroundings, enjoyable work, relaxing plea- 
sures, peace and quiet all about But stop and think a minute— 
hundreds of men and women who would ordinarily be enjoying 
these pleasures here with us are absent. Scattered to the four 
corners of the world, they are fighting among other reasons. BO 
that college life as we know it and as they have known it may 
continue to exist. How much any one of them would give for just 
a few minutes back on the campus they have loved. Let's show 
them we appreciate our privilege of being here. Let's not let them 
down; when they return they want to find things as they were 
when they left them or even better, and while they are away they 
want to know that things are still going well here. Let's make this 
year one We and they can be proud of. We will study hard, work 
hard, support campus and war activities, take advantage of our 
many opportunities— in short lie good citizens of the college com- 

In Recognition 

The Freshman Handbook has long been one of the most appre- 
ciated publications on this campus, and yet. perhaps has been the 
least praised. Many a bewildered freshman has found the answers 
to his numerous questions between the covers of this little book. 
But when the student becomes an upperclassman. he tends to for- 
get the value of the handbook, and thus it has failed to receive all 
the recognition it deserves. 

Therefore, we would like to say a few words in praise of this 
year's edition of the handbook. We believe that it is one of the 
best yet. and that all the extra information in it will certainly help 
the new Freshmen. Congratulations to editor Marjorie Brett and 
her excellent stall', to Mr. Kaston. and to theWSGA for incorporat- 
ing their handbook into the freshman one. The result of the coop- 
eration and hard work of all the staff is a new Freshman Handbook 
which is just about tops. 


Welcome to the campus, ring the bells in the Old Chapel tower. 
We. too. welcome to Massachusetts State College, friends both old 
and new. May your year be a pleasant and successful one. 

Among the new members of the college family this year are 
freshmen, the class of 1948. It is encouraging to see such a large 
entering group, especially in war time. We trust that their years 
at MSC will prove of the utmost value to them from the stand- 
point of knowledge, experiences, friends, and happiness. 

New faculty members, teaching fellows, and house mothers are 
also on campus this year. They too have our heartiest welcome and 

best wishes. 

Last but by no means least, our welcome goes to the group of 
Army Reservists now sharing our campus with us. We are happy 
to have these men at MSC. knowing that they are students here as 
we are, and that they, in addition, are serving their country by 
preparing themselves to enter the Air Corps and fight for the free-

Pres. Baker I^auds MSC 
Continued from swfN 1 

did a magnificent job in carrying 
through the training program for the 
Army Aviation Cadets who came to 
us on March 1, 1948. Those cadets have 
been replaced by a program for Army 
Aviation Reservists. We shall contin- 
ue to do our utmost to see that their 
program prepares them for the kind 
of service that will be required of them 
in the Air Corps. These men are guests 
on our campus and it is very impor- 
tant that we shall make them feel that 
they are a part of our college commun- 
ity and that they belong here as mem- 
bers of our college family. 

This year brings greater opportu- 
nities to the student body to carry- 
forward student organizations and ac- 
tivities. The support of every student 
is needed in the academic activities 
program and in tin- work of the stu- 
dent governing organizations partic- 
ularly. We know that our students will 
support these programs as well as the 
outside programs in aid of our war 
activities here and abroad. The oppor- 
tunities are many and we shall meet 

We are particularly glad this year 
to have such a large group of women 
students. They will direct the student 
activities pretty largely and will be 
worthy of the traditions of the college. 

A cordial welcome to new and old 
students. Let's prove this year that we 
are a college whose philosophy is ser- 

(signed) Dr. H. P. Baker 

dom of the world. We hope that they 
will enjoy their stay on campus and 
will go forth from MSC well prepared 
for whatever they may encounter in 
the Service, and that after the war 
many of them may perhaps return to 
receive the four year college training 

pleted instruction in dead-reckoning 
navigation ami aerial gunnery in ad- 
dition to the regular bomhardiering 

The silver wings of a flying officer 
and commissions as second lieutenant 
have been received by John Keough '44 
and Kansford Kellog '45 upon gradu- 
ation from the Columbus Army Air 
Field near Columbus, Mississippi. 

Another interesting story recently 
received from Fort Riley, Kansas con- 
cerns Ed Fideli '44, one-time Senate 
president at State and holder of many 
other honored positions. Fd, a lieuten- 
ant at Riley, has as one of his charges 
the well-known Mickey Rooney of the 
silver screen. Ed remarked that it's 
quite an honor, but that's about all. 

And now for those smattering bits 
of information as to where people are 
Stationed and what they are doing. Did 
you know that Paul Stahlberg '44 was 
a recent guest on campus . . . that Phil 
Iampietro '45 has completed his mid- 
shipman's training and that he is sta- 
tioned in California awaiting his com- 
mission . . . that Joseph Segel '4f> is 
now enrolled as an aviation cadet in 
the pie-flight school at Maxwell Field 
. . .that John Lawrence '4(! has entered 
the Army Air Forces Training Com- 
mand school at Yale for aviation ca- 
det training in communications . . . 
that David Kaplan '44 was recently 
commissioned a second lieutenant in 
the Army Air Forces at Turner Field, 
Albany, Ceorgia . . . that Charles Rich- 
ards 'U won his Navy "Wings of 
Gold" and was commissioned an En- 
sign in the Naval Reserve at I'ensa- 
cola, Florida . . . that William Arnold 
18 is now enrolled as an aviation cadet 
n the pre-flight school at Maxwell 
Field . . . that George Fairfield '47 is 
in the V-12 stationed at Union College 
in New York . . . that Wilfred Learned 
'47 visited school a short while ago and 
that he is now headed for Mississippi 
. . . that Dick Swan '47 is at Williams 
as a V-12 student . . . that Johnnie 
Wiehaas '47, star of last year's oper- 
etta, is in the infantry in California. 
We could go on like this forever but 
we must leave some room for our la- 
test innovation, the "Servicewomen's 

Rvt. Mary Fitzgerald '42 began her 
basic training at the Third WAC train- 
ing center at Fort Oglethorp, Georgia 
recently. With the WAVES at North-

Alviani Announces Musicale Events 
Conrade Thibault Slated To Appear 

Conrad Thibault, the annual Hansel 

and Gretel operetta, an intersorority 
glee club, a girls drum and bugle corps, 
and a college concert series are only a 
few of the musical programs and pro- 
jects which are planned for the coming 
fear, Doric Alviani. MSC musical di- 

■ ctor announced today. 

The first big musical event of the 
year will take place on October 17, 
when Conrad Thibault, world-famous 
baritone will sing at a Social Union 

"Hansel and Gretel", the operetta 
which was so successfully presented 
last spring, will be given again on the 
first week-end in December. It is 
hoped that the presentation of this 
iperetta to open the Christmas sea- 
will become an annual custom at 
Massachusetts State an affair to be 
looked forward to year after year. 

The Women's Glee Club will soon 

begin preparations for their Christmas 

1 oniert. Many tine selections e.special- 

y suited for concert presentation will 

■ given. 

Doric Alviani is especially enthnsi 
astic about starting an intersorority 
BC club. About ten girls from each 
orority will be chosen to represent 

heir organization in this new club. It 
is expected that their first concert 
will be presented sometime in Decem- 
ber, and will feature Christmas music. 
A girls' drum and bugle corps will 
also be organised in the near future. 
Co-eds from all clases will be urged 
to participate in this new campus ac- 
tivity. The members of the corps will 
wear special uniforms, and their pre 
lenee will add color and snap to any 

k i asion. 

A college concert series of about 
three programs which will feature 
well-known music personalities, such 
as Percy Cranger and Conrad Thi- 
bault, is being planned by the Music 
I ommittee. This committee, headed by 
Dr. Stowell C. Coding, feels that by 
< barging a small fee for tickets to all 
tiiree of these concerts it will be able 


to bring some really fine music 
musician- to Massachusetts State. 

Plans for next semester are m> less 
ambitious than those now being made 
for the fall term. The music (dubs will 
unite in presenting their annual Social 
Union program. 

The American Music Festival will 
be held again this year in February. 

Bob Shaw, who is the arranger for 
Fred Waring's orchestra, will come to 
Massachusetts state to work with the 
Glee Club and other musical organ- 
izations. Persons prominent in musi- 
cal circles throughout the state will 
also be present during that week. 

Doric Alviani will direct the Glee 

Club's annual operetta to be held in 
the spring. The name of this year's 

p r ese nt ation has not yet I n decided 


Massachusetts State's Annual Music 
Festival will take place this year dur- 
ing the week of April 29 to May 5, 

As in past \ears, students will have 
an opportunity to receive instruction 
in instrumental music and iii singing. 
The demand for such instruction ' 
year was so great, that this year a 
new member has been added to tin 
group of music teat hers. 

The Freshman Choir will be organ- 
ized this year as in the past, and try- 
outs will be held in the very near fu- 

The CI,.,. Club plans to make several 
otr campus appearances this year and 
as usual will complete their season 
with their annual trip to New York.

New German Club Plans 
Picnic, Year's Program 

The idea for ■ new Gernsan dub, 
suggested by an art lecture given Is it 
spring to members of Dr. Karl Lutge's 

German elaases, is now materializing. 
The club will have its first meeting, 
a picnic held off campus, Fnda. af 

tei noon ami evening, October <i. 

Sigiiificanf aspects of Cerman his- 
tory, art, music, and literature will be 

considered at the group sseetings, 

which will be held at least once each 
month. The lectures and discussions 

will be iii English, while German will 

be the language of the refreshm. I 

At the fust me e ting specific plans 
will be made and officers elected from 

thoet students who were nominated 
in the spring. They are, f,,r president, 

Carol TaJmadge, Dorothea Lobniann, 
and Rosemary Spear; vice president, 
Mary Staler! and Frances White, a 

secretary treasurer will he elected ,,t 
t hat meet Injr. 

This idub is specially designed fm 
those students who believe that then- 
is too much training fm specific Jobs 

and a great lack of interest in the 
studies of philosophy, religion, art, and 
history which are really the basis 'if 

all thought.

ing facilities. Fraternity houses haw 
been appropriated for sororities and

have been made because of the conclu 
■ion of last year's Air Corps program 
and the beginning of the new Army 
Reserve program. 

The staffs of the Index and Colle 
gian are re-established in their former 
office! on the first floor of Memorial 
Hall. Because the army occupied then 

offices last year, the Collegian move,, 
to the basement of Memorial Hall and 
the Index to Stockbridge Hall. 

The regular college infirmary build- 
ings have again become available to 
students and Phi Sigma Kappa ROUS)

stud< nt body as well as the Army A 
Corps Reserve, 

North College, which housed fresh 
men boys and ASTP-ROTC, is now 
being lived in by junior and SSnioi 
riils. The Abbey has heen turned 
to freshmen and sophomore women 
after having served as Army Ail 
I orpi barracks last year. 

Sigma Kappa sorority has moved 
into Kappa Sigma house and Pi Beta 
1'hi sorority has taken over Theta CI 
house. Tau Epsilon Phi house is now 
the house of Sigma lota sorority. A 
group of freshmen girls and transfer 
from other schools are living at the 
home of Mrs. J. P. Campion, 401 
North Pleasant Street. Lambda Chi

From the above excerpi recently received by the editora oi the 
Collegian from Sam Springer, ex '45 now overaeas, it is obvious 
that the copies of the Collegian sent out free each week to MS< 
servicemen and women are greatly appreciated. These copies oi the 
paper serve as a builder of morale, a reminder of past pleasures a 
stimulus arousing hopes for the future, a contact between the 
college and its former students. 

We must continue to send Collegians each week to our own ser- 
vice men and women. They surely deserve whatever pleasure they 
derive from these papers. Let's support the Pops Concert spon- 
sored by the Collegian and help provide money so that no MM 
serviceman will be disappointed by not receiving his Collegian.

Dear Osc, 
It has been ten days since I saw you 

last, ami, honestly, I haven't seen a 

cow yet and they don't make us work 

ill the fields! Cee, Ose, it's a college 
just like Smith, except that there are 

at numbers of men, but Ose, don't 
el worried because I've only been out 
Bis times, and each time with a differ- 
( lit one SO you don't have to worry at 
all, honest Use! I still look the same 
Ose, except I'\ e gained 8 pounds and 

muscles in my legs are getting sort 

Of bulky, and I've decided to wear lip- 
stick (don't tell my father, though), 

:,,,! !•„, even going to cut off my pig- 
We have the nicest dorm, Ose, 

on top of a mountain. I can hardly 
wait until you come op and see me, 

and we can walk up and down the 

mountain together. Gee Ose, it'll be 
more fun. 

The first few days we took mental 
tests Ose, and honest I know I flunked 
(that means didn't pass, Ose). And 
you know what? The place we live in 
Riled Huttcrfield, and I heard some 
fresh boy say he thought he'd drop 
up to the creamery that night and look 

over the stock honest, Ose, I 

think that's terrible, don't you? 

We have to be In every night at ten 

o'clock except Saturday and Sunday, 
but gee arhis, Ose, I don't know how 
I'm going to be able to stay out every 
night until ten. I'll he dead! This col- 
lege is going CO be easy tho', Ose. All 
the professors (they're the teachers, 
').-,(•» are so easy with homework and 
Stuff. Being valedictorium of our class 
even though there were only you 

and two others In the class will 

help. I don't have any eight o'clock 
classes, but I gel up at six-thirty ev- 
ery morning anyway to clean my room 
and write to you. 

We have the prettiest white tarns to 
wear for awhile Ose, Honest, we're BO 
lucky to he a freshman; no-one else 
can wear them. Honest, I just love col- 

I'm so glad I didn't join the WAVES, 
Ose I'd much rather join the 

Well, Ose, I've got to go now. It's 
eight o'clock and I have to leave now 
so I'll be on time for my nine o'clock

On Joining A Club 

When a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of one of the large women 8 
colleges, a girl voted by her classmate, most popular and most 
likely to succeed, was asked recently what advice she could give to 
freshmen to enable them to get the most out of their college ca- 
reers Bhe recommended among other things that students new to 
any college should participate wholewheartedly in at least one or 
two extracurricular activities which are of interest to them 

Why was this suggestion included as an important part ol the 
advice to students entering college? Because many of these college 
students are likely to overlook extracurricular activities and not 
participate in them and thus miss out on one of the most valuable 
parts of any college experience. 

The reasons why the individual profits from his membership in 
clubs and other extracurricular groups are many. Friendships to 
be gained is just one of the more important ones. There are few 
better places than a club for one to meet people with similar in- 
terests Experience of all types— with people, business, organizing, 
work. -play, and life itself— is to be gained. Concrete rewards such 
as Academic Activity medals, trips, and banquets may be ob- 
tained. Still another of the many reasons one should participate in 
extracurricular activities is that doing so means fun, recreation, a 
pleasant outlet for one's energies in time not needed for studies. 
Here at Massachusetts State we would like every student to be 
an active member of at least one club or other campus organiza- 
tion—religious, social, academic, be that as it may. There are many 
clubs and activities to choose among, something to interest every- 
body. A glance at the list on the opposite page of this paper should 
show any undecided person the possibilities and help in making a 
selection. The important thing is to find an activity which in- 
terests one and then to support it fully, for only then will the ac- 
tivity flourish and the individual get the greatest benefit from it. 

The WSGA Council held a meeting 
on Wednesday, September 27 in the 
WSGA room in the Memorial Building. 
Anne Tilton '46 was elected WSGA 
president. For further details see page 

It was decided at this meeting that 
callers' nights in the dormitories would 
be limited to three nights a week, these 
nights to be decided upon by the in- 
dividual houses. 

House Manager To Elect 
It was also decided that the house 
managers of the sorority houses should 
meet together and elect one delegate 
from among themselves to represent 
the sorority houses on the WSGA 

The fraternity houses which are be- 
ing used as dormitories are also to e- 
lect housechairmen. These housechair- 
tnen are to hold a meeting with the 
housechairmen of North College and 
Draper Hall to elect one delegate from 
among themselves to represent these 
houses on the Council. 

The housechairmen will elect their 
delegates at a meeting on Thursday, 
October 5 at 8:30 p.m. in the WSGA 

Weekly Column 
The Council voted to have a weekly 
column in the Collegian to announce 
plana made at the meetings. 

It was decided that Polly Piper and 
Genevieve Todd, sophomore represen- 
tatives to the Council, should take 
over for the remainder of the term 
the duties of the secretary, Mary Va- 
chon, who did not return to college. 

The next regular Council meeting 
will be held on Thursday, October 5, 
at 7:00 p.m. in the WSGA room.

MSC Alumni Cheer 
New Publication 

/-'// Afory O'Reilly '47 
The news is out! about a new lit- 
i rary publication, still in its embryonic 
state, at MSC. To those of us who are 
"upper" upperclassmen, this publica- 
tion comes as an answer to: "I thought 

sometime I hoped!" To those others 

who have just escaped the green, 
whirling, fog of tieslnnen year, and 

are just beginning to emerge as po- 
tential sturdy supporters of MSC ac- 
tivities, this publication answers the 
question: "I wonder why they don't " 
But they have, and now you are be- 
ginning to wonder, have what? They 

i I will refer to the members who com- 
pose this gro ip later) have established 

a new publication, namely LIAISON, 
to which former State students may 
mit a wide variety of creative writ- 
ing for publication. 

Who should be interested? Who 
should support the publication? 
Who should respond to the "call 
to colors"? Is it to be a publication 
for alumni and by alumni alone? 
Evidently, its purpose is to pro- 
vide an instrument of expression 
to former State students. However, 
this doe.; not mean that its supporters 
and readers must or should be limited 
ti- a'. mini alone. If you enjoy reading 
good creative literature, if you favor 
an intellectual publication sponsoring 
"writing, discussion, and criticism as 
fine arts", run do not walk to the 
offices of the editorial staff members 
and receive information concerning 
the first issue of LIAISON'. Any min- 
utes you may devote to reading this 
first issue (if you are lucky enough 
to find one) will bring pleasure, sat- 
isfaction, enthusiasm, and pride. 

Already many alumni have voiced 
their whole-hearted approval, well 
wishes, and assurances of literary and 
financial support, to the editorial hoard 
of the new LIAISON. The following 
campus personalities who have made 
i dream an actuality are: Chairman, 
Dr. Maxwell H. Goldberg, "2H ; Dr. 
William G. ODonnell, 'M8; Mr. Fred 
C. Fllert, 'MO; Miss I.eonta Horrigan, 
':''.; Mr. William Henry bfoes, ":M: 
Miss Jean McNamara. '12: Mr. Alan 
Bell, ex' 12; Mr. Seymour KoritS, '11: 
Mr. Arnold Murray, '46. 

To them: many cheers! Looking a- 
esd undergraduates: someday LIAI- 
SON shall be you i- medium of expres- 
and constant connection with 
State, former State friends and as- 

iatea Add your support now! Good 
uck to LIAISON!

been the star of such big commercial which will feature discussions 

shows as Maxwell Mouse "Show boat", talks bj prominent speakers. 

Coca Cola, A & p Gypsies, Philip 
Morris, Luck) Strike, American Melo 

dy Hour, and Manhattan Mern Go 

One tiling' that has contributed to 
Mr. Thiahault's popularity is his dem 

ocratic attitude toward program-mak 

ing he believes that the best reason 

in the world for singing a song I 

listener's request for it. "Whether a 
s-.iiK is great and enduring music isn't 
important to the person who makes 
the request," says Thiahault. "He's 
asked for that song because he likes 
its melody or because it has 
Ipecial meaning for him and that's 
enough for me." 

Merits As Composer 
Not only is Mr. Thiahault a singer, 
he is also a composer. In III 12, while 
on his way to the President 's Birth 
day Ball, be fell to thinking of the 
plight of France and our recent entry 
into the war. A melody took shape in 
the singer's mind, marching beside 
his thoughts. He wrote the music and 
the words (in both French and Eng- 
lish) on the back of the book he had 

been r ea ding ;, and titled the composi- 
tion "Soldi.) of Fighting France.' 1 
Frank Black, music director of the 

National Mroadcasting Company, was 
so enthuaiatk about the song he asked 
Mr. Thiahault to allow him to make 
the orchestra arrangement. He did 
this, and "Soldier of Fighting France" 
was played for the first time anywhere 
on the Cities Service Program, aider 
Mr. Black's direction, in July of last 
year. Later in the same month, the 
score was down across the Atlantic 

so that it might be played in England 
on July ii, Bastille Day.

something more than individuals — 
namely, as members of a larger whole, 
the collage. It affords them opportun-

Moreover, the student body should 
see that, if the workers on the paper 
write up the news, it is the student 
body which makes that news; and if the 
editors comment on the news, it is the 
student body that gives then the oc- 
casion for that comment. It has been 
said that Shakespeare, in his plays, 
holds the mirror up to nature. Similar- 
ly, the student publication holds the 
mirror up to the student body. It is 
for the students to see to it that the 
imagee in the mirror are at least cred- 
itable. Thus, in a way, it is the stu- 
dent body itself that makes the publi- 
cation. Hence the student body, as well 
as the editorial staff, should fed a di-

Finally, the students should value 
their newspaper because of its far- 
reaching social implications. After all,, 
the student newspaper is an exercise

our country is at war, but which, with- 
in the space of a few short years, the 
people of more and more nations have

of the press. The student newspaper 
is thus not only an agent but a symbol 
of American democracy. As such the 
students should value it far more than 
may he warranted by the quality of 
its chronicle and comment. Its worth 
to its staff ami its readers lies only 
in part in what it reports and discus- 
ses, and in how it performs these cen- 
tral news functions. At least equally 
important is what it means as the 
practice of a basic American right by 
and for young men and women who, 
upon graduation, will be called upon to 
exercise democratic leadership in the 
American community.

Students Can Apples 
At Hort. Man. For SCA 

Slosh, slosh, slosh went many feet 
in the water on the floor of the "Hort. 
Man." building last Saturday after 
noon as volunteers from the student 
body helped can apples. In order to 
carry on their year's work the SCA 
needed some extra money, so the 
"Hort. Man." department made it pos- 
sible for a group of students to help 
with the fall canning. The checks which 
the SCA volunteers will receive for 
their work will be turned over to the 
association treasury. 

Everyone was dressed in his or her 

oldest clothes, and many wore boots 

to protect their shoes from the water 

on the floor. Equipped with knives 

and tin pans, many girls sat in a 

semi-circle chatting and working. 

However, the center of interest was 

the apple picking machine, which 

Worked with a little encouragement 

and plenty of arm action. The steam 

and the roar of machines made one 

forget he was even on State campus. 

As a few of the girls rushed off 

with brown stained hands to attend 

a tea Miss Skinner was giving that 

afternoon, one of them remarked, 

"And to think I used to complain when 

mother asked me to peel apples for a

State Welcomes Concert Series 

The announcement that Massachusetts State College this year is 
inaugurating its Hist annual concert series comes as welcome news 
to the Whole campus. For years MSC faculty members and students 
have Attended regularly the concert series at Smith, Mt. Holyoke, 
and in Springfield. Now at last we shall have our own series of con- 
certs by outstanding musicians right here at State. 

The beginning of an annual concert tradition here at MSC should 
be of tremendous value to the college. It will create favorable pub- 
licity thus drawing to the college attention which may help us 
now and in the future. The attention attracted by such publicity 
might help us in many types of college campaigns such as the drive 
for University of Massachusetts and the expanded building pro- 
gram. Favorable publicity created by the series would perhaps re- 
sult in guiding more students to our college and in creating good- 
will and a general good impression throughout the country. 

Cultural advantages, quite obviously, are also to be derived from 
these concert series. The concerts will enrich the lives of MSC stu- 
dents and of all those who attend. The regular MSC music pro- 
gram which includes classes, glee clubs, choir, orchestra and Music 

The noted singers and musicians who come as guests through 
these series will add a certain prestige to the college which is by no 
means undesirable. 

An attractive group of three programs to open the MSC concert 
series is now being arranged. From this nucleus, small but of ex- 
cellent quality, it is hoped that a more extensive and even greater 
series will grow and, held every year, will become one of the most 
worthwhile MSC traditions. To the State College music committee 
goes the credit for this admirable piece of work— planning and ar- 
ranging a concert series for MSC. Let's back this new program 
making it a complete success, the perfect opening of an unending 
chain of even greater successes. 

After four years the seniors have 
seen their class dry at the end of the 
Rope Pull, in spite of the fact that a 
kihitzer thought toe holds were un- 
sportsmanlike . . . This reminds me of 
freshman hats and the reason for the 
blue ones is the war, not a large num- 
ber of Stoekbridi fresh . . • And now 
that they are properly serogged, they 
will sport their head gear until Christ- 
mas (except when in more military 

Horatio has requested that his 

name appear . . . We'd say something 
else, but are afraid of reverting to 
tripe . . .

Ponkeydust says, 
•'Can't think, too dumb, 
Inspiration, won't come. 
Poor ink, poor pen, 
Poor writer, A-men." 
From a censored source (Civilian 
secret) comes the following ditty. 
"Professors shouldn't make passes, 
At girls within their classes. 
Bat marks in "A" or "D" vicinity 
May indicate affinity." 
One of the things that fell during the 
course of this last week was the ceil- 
ing in Kuth Kitson's room . . . the re- 
sult of trying to raise it, no doubt . . . 
One more reason for the freshmen to 
appreciate Butterfield . . . (The uppei 
classmen don't need any) . . . 

DonkeydtUt agrees with the rest 
that the Pops Concert was tops. One 
more bouquet to all those responsible

now that we didn't put the faculty 
on the ramp to crack jokes at their 
expense . . . After the concert when

Thanks For Your Support 

Thanks to the loyal support of students, faculty members, and 
friends of the college, the "Pops" Concert presented by the Colle- 
gian last Saturday night was very successful from the standpoint 
of financial proceeds and audience enjoyment. The response on the 
part of all who attended the concert was highly gratifying and the 
help given us by many persons too numerous to mention individual- 
ly is deeply appreciated. 

Enough money was raised to enable us to send Collegians to 
MSC servicemen and women for several months to come. Any for- 
mer MSC students now in the service who are not already receiving 
copies of the Collegian should send his address to the subscription 
manager of the Collegian, Miss Diane Kelton, and his name will be 
added to our mailing list. Anyone who knows servicemen and wo- 
men who would like to receive the Collegian, and are eligible to re- 
ceive it, is urged to send us the names and addresses of these peo- 
ple as soon as possible. The Collegian will be glad to mail copies of 
the paper to all MSC servicemen and women. 

Again the Collegian wishes to express its thanks for the splen- 
did support of all who helped to make its recent program the suc- 
cess which it was. 

The regular weekly meeting of 
WSGA Council was held last Thurs- 
day night, October 5, in the WSGA 
room in the Memorial Building. Sev- 
eral suggestions brought up at this 
meeting were voted upon at the gen- 
eral WSGA meeting held last night 
at Bowker Auditorium. 

After the Council meeting last 
Thursday, the House Chairmen of the 
Sorority Houses and off-campus 
houses met to elect representatives to 
the Council. Anne Merrill, house chair- 
man of North College, was elected rep- 
resentative of the off-campus houses, 
and Shirley Carlson of Kappa Kappa 
Gamma was chosen to represent the 
Sorority Houses. 

The meeting last night in Bowker 
Auditorium was the first business 
meeting of the Association. Anne Til- 
ton, who was formerly WSGA vice- 
president, was installed as president 
to take the place of Helen Beaumont, 

who has left school. 


Outing Club To Hold Hike 

Continued from page 1 
to go will bring a box lunch and meet 
at 2 p.m. at the Memorial Building. 

The next meeting will be on October 
80 at 7 p.m. at the Farley Clubhouse.

A short tribute should hereby be 
extended to the Collegian staff and 
(specially Jean Spettigue, for the 
very excellent "Pops" concert pre- 
sented last Saturday. The very recep- 
tive crowd that gathered in Bowker 
gave me a grand feeling for I knew 
that the Collegian would still be sent 
to the men and women who are sport- 
ing the odors of Uncle Sam. Incident- 
lv, a quick glance at the letters I have 
piled on my desk would answer that 
question without doubt or hesitation. 
However, I am here to present news 
of the servicemen, and consequently 
here goes. A letter from Jack Ring '47 
expresses the complete desire to again 
be back at State. In addition to that 
he states that Bob Toohey '47 is in 
California where he is in L.C.I, train 
ing. Jack is in the Navy and he is 
studying radar in Chicago. 

Note has come to me concerning 
Bon Campbell. Don is a corporal and 
is now stationed in England. He was 
a very excellent athlete while at State, 
and also a member of Kappa Sigma. 
The mere mention of athletes, and 
the thought of seeing Gil Santin comes 
immediately to mind. Gil is now a lieu- 
tenant in the Marine Air Corps. Gil 
played football and basketball, and ex- 
celled in both. On completion of his 
leave he will travel to Florida and 
continue with his work. 

A card from Tom Tolman '44 reveals 
his whereabout as being in the Navy 
and stationed at Sampson, New York._ 
"Turk" informs me that he has run 
into Sam Smoller and Allan Bell while 
stationed there. 

Another very distinguished member 
of the class of 1945 visited State over 
the weekend, and that person was 
none other than Flight Officer Bob 
Butler. Bob is stationed at Westover 
Field and is awaiting the "push off". 
Bob tells me that he has heard from 
Bob Kearney, who is in England, re- 
cuperating from a wound. Another 
choice bit of information is that of 
Danny McCarthy '45 and John Powers 
'45 and their entrance into the Europe- 
an Theater of war. 

And now for the did you know de- 
partment — did you know that Jim 
Graham '42 is at Camp Monmouth, 
New Jersey where he is in the field 
of communications . . . that Dave Ro- 
berts '46, an aviation cadet at Chapel 
Hill is now home on leave . . . that 
Jim Marshall '47 is at Kessler Field, 
Mississippi . . . that Bob King '44 is 
a corporal in the Quartermaster Corps 
at Cheyenne, Wyoming . . . that Jack 
Sullivan '47 is at Sampson . . . that 
Bob Gordon is now overseas and in 
the Pacific area . . . that Sid Topal 
'45 is a second "Louie" at M.I.T. . . . 
that Al Brown '45 visited State . . . 
that Jane Duffy '45 is in the WAVES 
J at Hunter College . . . and that Jack 
Crean has finally entered Sampson 
(today.) 'Nuffsaid. 



by Yours Truly 


We, of course, think Mass. 
is one of the most ideal places in 
universe, but we would like to i 
a suggestion or two to further its 
feet ion. 

After a heated discussion and a I u. 
ing of the proverbial pros and e 
we have decided that the college sh 
honor individually, its former stud 
and faculty (both men and won 
who are in the armed services. Ac- 
cording to the flag hanging in Stock- 
bridge, M.S.C. has had the hono 
sending over two thousand of its 
and women into the service organiza- 
tions of our country. These men 
women could be given the Individual 
public recognition which they dea 
by erecting an honor roll on campus, 
or by listing their names in a promin- 
ent place, such as the Memorial build- 
ing. They would be honored daily by 
the students and by the many visitors 
on campus every day. 

There are many student orgai iza- 
tions on campus, which we think w 
be glad to undertake or support a can I 
paign for this cause. Perhaps w< ■ 
wrong, but we think the college, facul 
ty and students alike, would be ^rladl 
to donate time and money for this pro-l 

While we are on the subject of irr,-| 
provements, why doesn't someon. 
a eanner to the Home Ec dspsrtl 
furnish a community car for all l 

professors who are late to cla> 
to the inconvenience of riding bikttj 
or install a deodorizer in the Chenj] 

Our first suggestion is on the n I 
up, though, SO how about some it.:! 
reflection on the part of you readers 
and a few opinions?

Quadrangle Grows In Popularity 
Through Student-Faculty Discussion

"Who's going to be the guest at 
Quad this week?" is the question quite 
a few girls on campus will ask their 
friends when they want to know about 
the next Quadrangle meeting. Quad 
is the familiar name for the non-sor- 
ority club on campus. Last year, at 
least, the main portion of their meet- 
ings was devoted to bettering student- 
faculty relations. Each week the club 
would invite two professors and their 
wives to their meeting. In that way, 
the members met professors from ev- 
ery department on campus and broad- 
ened their acquaintances considerably. 
In the fall of 1942, when candidates 
for a honorary colonel were to be cho- 
sen from among the coeds on campus, 
the question of how the non-sorority 
gills were to be represented had the 
WSGA puzzled. At the suggestion of 
Dorothy Dunklee, president, and Helen 
Heaumont, sophomore representative, 
the coeds not affiliated with any house 
were asked to meet at Mem Hall to 
vote for a candidate. The WSGA had 
in mind that perhaps some sort of 
unified organization might grow from 
this meeting. Thus Quadrangle was 
born with Betty Bushnell as tempor- 
ary chairman. 

After the usual tussle of drawing 
up a constitution and having it ap- 
proved. Quadrangle was announced as 
SH official organization on campus in 
March, IMS. The name was chosen 
because the four classes are represent- 
ed. Under the leadership of Carol 
Goodchild, the first president, the 
meetings were held in the Abbey "Y" 
room every Monday evening. For the 
rest of the school year plans were 
made for the future and an increasing 
membership built up. 

When school opened in the fall of 
1943, the problem of where to have 
the meetings was solved by holding 
them at Lambda Chi. The practice of 
inviting faculty members almost ev- 
ery Monday night began there. Prob- 
lems, local and international, were dis- 

cussed with faculty and Quad Members 
participating. Out of one of these dis- 
cussions came the "cow bell" incident 
In Old Chapel last spring. 

This year the meetings are being 
held in Mem. Hall, and all are open 
to the student body. NY\t week's meet- 
ing should prove particularly interest 
ing to the students as the guests will 
be Mrs. Howard Speer and Mr. and 
Mrs. Henry Korson. In that way the 
students shall have an opportunity to 
meet these new professors. The meet 
ing Monday will be held in the lobby 
of Mem Hall in front of the Are place 
at 7:4f,. 

Any girl who is not a member «.f | 
•orority is automatically an inactive 
member of Quad, but she may become 
active anytime she chooses to join the 
club. Quadrangle is the representative 
body for the non-sorority girls. 

The officers of Quadrangle are pres- 
ident, Myrtle Policy, vice-presnlent, 
Marjorie Hrownell: secretary, Jean 
Thomas; and treasurer, Muriel Her 

The advisors to Quadrangle are Dr. 
Snd Mrs. H. Karl Lutge, Or. and Mrs. 
Frank Mohler, and Rev. and Mrs. W. 
Burnet Baoton, Jr. Patronesses are 
Mrs. Hugh P. Maker. Miss Kuth Tot- 
man, and Miss Winifred Shoenleder.

The Stockbridge School of Agricul- 
ture officially opened on Monday, Oc- 
tober 2, 1944, with classes starting on 
Tuesday, October 3. The total enroll- 
ment for the first term is as follows: 
30 men, including 3 World War II ve- 
terans and four women students. Seven 
of these students are from out of state, 
including one man from Barrouquilla, 
"lumbia. South America. This is an 
increase over the class of 1944 which 
'otaled 28 students. 

After completing their 24 weeks of 
tudies at Massachusetts State, the 
class will go out on placement training 
at recognized farms or concerns. When 
this placement training is completed, 
they will receive a certificate of grad- 
l ation. No formal graduation exercis- 
es will be held. Following is a list of 
students enrolled.

Although inter-collegiate football at 
Massachusetts State College is now 
a thing of the past, there will, never- 
theless, be a revival of intramural ac- 
tivities here this year. In a recent 
freshman rally almost fifty football 
aspirants turned out, and it was ar- 
ranged to establish a league of be- 
tween five and six teams. 

This idea for intramural football 
has been entirely sanctioned by Prof. 
Curry S. Hicks, head of the Physical 
Education Department, provided it be 
limited to "six man" football. Prof. 
Hicks expressed the opinion that the 
boys are not physically fit to engage 
in the regular "slam bang" type of 
ball. He thinks that "six man" foot- 
ball, being a fairly wide open game 
and involving fewer injuries, can be 
played without too much risk. The is- 
suance of athletic equipment will not 
take place until the candidates are in 
good physical condition. 

In addition to freshman candidates 
for football, there will be a sprinkling 
of upper-class candidates. All men will 
be under the supervision of Fred 
Streeter, freshman physical education 

Though this "six man" football will 
never take the place of the regular 
"eleven", it is the next best thing and 
promises to afford much pleasure to 
football fans.

white marker is traveling at a fair 
SSeed toward the upperclassmen's side. 
A voluminous cheer is thrown across 
the pond as the first freshman tumbles 
into the water. Gradually the others 
fall in behind. So there were all three 
of them in the pond— the rope, the 
mud, and the freshmen! With a little 
persuasion they reached the opposite 
side, amidst welcoming and jubilant 

In sportsmanlike manner, a few 
upperclasmen joined them in the pond, 
and enjoyed a short, cool, but mud- 
dy swim. 

Before the contest, one intrepid 
freshman claimed that "Tux is going 
to wear a tuxedo, he's so sure of win- 
ning! We'll keep up the freshman tra- 
dition." But afterwards, he graciously 
consented that he was glad he'd come 

The Senate had faith in the spirit 
and cooperation of the upperclasses. 
Joe Kunces, president, had offered, 
"We'll beat them!" and Fred West, 
vice-president added, "If Mr. Kunces 
says we will win, then we'll win." To 
this, treasurer Rube Allen has said, 
"I can't swim, so we'll have to win." 
Then, looking again to the fresh- 
men, Johnny Freshman had said, "have 
extreme confidence in the freshmen 
class." Further quotations from the 
class of '48 were not deemed necessary 
either before or after the rope-pull. 
Larry Briggs was the head timer 
and chief judge, and was assisted by 
Fred Streeter and Dr. Vernon P. Hel- 

Because of the freshman defeat 
their caps will have to be worn until 
Christmas. Had the freshmen not lost, 
the caps would have been worn only

The rope-pull was definitely a suc- 
cessful and entertaining college acti- 
vity. It era* e (food contest. So oui 
hats ofr to you, freshmen, but don't 
forget to wear yours! 

I'll U<irt, ()'K,illi, >4| 

Do you know Mrs. Goilotto Gold- 
stein, the new appointee to the French 
department of your college faculty'.' 
If not, here is an opportunity for you 
to meet her. Mrs. Goldstein, who tied 
to this country from Fiance just a 
bout two years ago, has said that her 
experiences are not interesting be- 
cause there WON so many others who 
experienced so much more danger and 
hardship. We admire her modesty! 

Mrs. Goldstein lived in Paris and 
was studying there prior to the Ger- 
man occupation. In spite of the fact 
that she and her family (led from one 
city to another Nantes, Limoge, and 
finally Marseille she continued her 
studies Of the Fine Arts. Their hope 
was to receive permission from the 
French authorities to allow them to 
come to the I'nited States. Since both 
her brothers were of army age, this 
was a difficult task to accomplish. The 
French authorities had to he assured 
that her brothers would never fight 
for another country, or would in any 
way he disloyal to France. After a 
year of anxious waiting, permission 
was granted and the entire family, 
Mrs. Goldstein, her husband, mother, 
Snd brothers took the boat from Mar 
Mills to Oran. 

Nightmarish Journey 
There the nightmares in their Jour- 
ney to the states began. The trip by 
train from Oran to Csaabtaaes was 
memorable Indeed, and described by 

Mrs. Goldstein as worse than a dream. 
For three days in mid August desert 
heat the train traveled the .'{80 miles 
to Casahlanca. The passengers who 
jammed the train, were without food 
Or drink throughout these days. Only 
three cans of milk were distributed 
each day hy the Vichy government for 
the twenty babies who were among the 
ne SSS n gerS. The constant crying of the 
habies made whatever sleep that might 
have Im-cii possible in the cramped 
quarters out of the question. Those 

aboard Suffered even more discomforts 
because at tin- sad Of the second day 
their lag! were terribly swollen. More 
Over when the train passed through 
many tunnels SUrOUtS, the dry, .lusty, 
Sir, and heat caused great difficulty 

in breathing. 

M Casahlanca. Mrs. Goldstein and 
her family were sent to a "concent | a 
tion camp". This consisted of u „| ( | 

dancing Boor, <»n which about one bun 
dred mattrcesee were scattered. Men, 

Women, and children mixed indiscnin 

Inatety in these quarters. Than was 
n<> running water and the toilet fa- 
cilities ordinarily would have served 
only a very small portion of those 

present Most of the people quartered 
bore were ill, and e general aura of 
filth pervaded the stmoaphsrs. One 

sickening examination of the kitchen 
in which Arabs prepared the food was 
enough to destroy any appetite Mrs. 
Goldstein had. 

F. B. L (JucslioningH 
At last, after these discomforting 
experiences, Mrs. Goldstein and her 
family etnharked for the United States 

on a Portugese ship, the gtrpepfiito. 

Compared to their former surround- 
ings they found the boat "very nice", 
hut the trip to the I'nited States was 
very long. In approximately ,„„. Month

USO To Launch Hostess 
Membership Drive Soon 

French Instructor 

Continued from /'".<>' :; 

Biter Stopping at the Bermudas, Hav- 
ana, and in Mexico, they reached Bal- 
timore. Here they were held and intern- 
lively questioned by the F. B. 1. for 
three days. From Baltimore Mrs. Gold- 
stei ! went to New York city where 
friends awaited her. Lack of sleep, 
noise, an.) the usual crowding of peo- 
ple convinced her that here was a city 
in which to spend a short vacation, 
but no plan- in which to live. Never- 
theless, during her stay in New York 
city, she studied zoology, embryology, 
and other sciences at Columbia Uni- 

Mrs. Goldstein is not a newcomer 
to Amherst In the past year she 
taught Frem* to forty students at 
Amherst college. Moreover she likes 
our College town, and enjoys knowing 
so many people in it. At present, when 
not earing for her three months old 
baby, or teaching, Mrs. Goldstein 
■panda much of her time in the lab- 
oratory. Newi of the American oc- 
cupation of Fans caused her such joy, 
that she COOld not see the newsreel 
through her tears! 

Contrasts American CeUegCS 
Concerning American colleges, Mrs. 

Goldstein commented that the one out- 
standing contrast b etwe en American 
and European colleges is the students' 
relationship to tin instructors. Here 
we enjoy Intellectual ami social con- 
tact with our professors, whereas in 

French universities the student has 
absolutely no contact with the lecturer. 
In Prance there are no colleges only 
universities, and the campus and cam- 
pus life do not exist. 

It is our hope that Mis. Goldstein 
will enjoy her stay at MSC, and come 
to enjoy more of our American char- 
acteristics. We welcome her and wish 
her "Good Fuck".

Roger Richards Heads 
MSC Debating Society 

The Debating Society will open its 
1!»44 season with a meeting on Tues- 
day, October 17 in the Old Chapel 
seminar room. Although the nesting 
is scheduled for four o'clock, students 
finding this inconvenient may arrange 
to come at f> o'clock. 

A novel part of this year's program 
will be a model congress with all the 
features of the United States houses. 
Another added attraction is discussion 
groups centered around the pertinent 
topics of the day. 

Roger Richards, '4(i is the manager 
this year; he has been with the society 
since he was a freshman. Any student 
interested in debating, regardless of 
his experience or lack of it, is urged

new season. The present members of 
the cluh hope to have as successful a 
year as their previous 1943-44 pro-

Peppy 'Pops' Pleases 
Campus 'Cafe Society 

Skunhs out of hats, music from 
a brand-new orchestra, chocolate frap- 
p s, and jelly doughnuts were some 
f the highlights of the Collegian 
Fops Concert held last Saturday night. 
As a last-minute substitution for the 
ventriloquist act scheduled for Mr. 
Kingsley Ferry, principal of Amherst 
High School, Mr. Richard MacMeekin, 
a magician from Amherst, was pre- 
sented. His mystic feats of mind read- 
ing, pulling a victory garden piece by- 
piece from a magic cylinder, and 
sawing off the hands of an intrepid 
freshman girl completed the program 
of piano solos by John Delavoryas, 
movies, numbers by the new orchestra, 
and songs by Doric Alviani. 

Surprise performer of the evening 
was four-year-old Naomi Jean Gold- 
berg, daughter of Dr. Maxwell H. 
Goldberg, who anounced her father's 
entrance on the stage as emcee with 
cries of "there's Daddv". 

The fortunate fa< Ity members and 
housemothers seated at tables on the 
ramps were served during the inter- 
missions by Collegian Staff mem 
hers who acted as waitresses. Those 
not so lucky forced their way to tin 
mobbed refreshment booths where ice 
cream, cokes, floats, frappes, coffee, 
tea. cookies, and assorted doughnuts 
were on sale. 

The financial success of the Fops 
Concert was doe to the organisation 
and management by Jean Spettigue, 
Collegian business manager. Enough 
money wai raised by the program to 
send the Collegian to students in the 
service for several months to come.

The question this week is: what do 
you think of our library hours'.' At the 
present the library is open from 8 to 
5:30 and 0:80 to 9:00 on weekdays, 
from 8:00 to 12:00 noon on Saturday 

and from 6:80 to fj:00 on Sunday. 
Joyce Gibbs '45—! have a class in 
bibliography which involves much li- 
brary research. Since I work at meal 
times, 1 can work in the libe no day 
for more than an hour and a half 
consecutively. I want an opportunity 
to go to the library more often than 
I have been able, even if it is later 
at night or week-ends. 

Dick Chin '4<»— I would like the library 
to stay open until 10:00 and close 
earlier in the afternoon. I think we 
all spend more time studying in the 

Carol Coodehild '4ft- -In order to serve 
its purpose, the library should be open 
when we who work many hours during 
the day want it open. As to the finan- 
cial aspect, most of the student library 
workers are higher paid than those in 
any other job on campus. 
Arthur Kara! '17 After 5:00 I get 
too hungry to study. (This opinion 
was given by many students concern- 
ing having the libe open until 5:80). 
Lillian Brochu '17 If it were open a 
half hour more at night we could get 
lore done. No one settles down to 
study until 7:0(1 or alter so the fust 
half hour of the library being open 
in the evening is just wasted. 
Marjorie Huff '45 For those students 
who work every spare hour during the 
day, it would be very convenient and 
helpful if the library hours were ex- 
tended until 10:<i<> in the evening. 
Jean Manning '47 — I just about get 
started studying and the libe closes. 

Mary Carney '45—1 think the library 
should be open until ten o'clock 
nights. In the sorority houses dinner 
usually isn't over until almost seven 
o'clock which means that libe hours 
as they are now give us little time to 
study there in the evening.

%\ medals and decorations, including 
a congressional medal of honor, to 
alumni of Northwestern university.

Once again Social I'nion brings to 
tachUSetta State College Ted 
Shawn, the outstanding creative dan- 
cer in this country. Mr. Shawn will 
appear Wednesday evening, October 
-<uh at s p.m. in Bowker Auditorium 

present a lecture on the creative 
dance, well illustrated with much SC 

tual dancinf by the artist himself. 

Judging from Mr. Shawn's great pop 
Ularity "" his last vlsil here with the 

Deniahawn group of dancer in 1940, 
he should be very popular with the 

present MSI ' audience. 

Mr. Shawn, whose art embodie an 
entirely new concept ion of dancing, 

o » bines lis master) with ■ great 
sense of sympathy with the basic en o 

tiona of humanity, Be himself has 

said. "Only the greatest art e n unite 
all classes. When ill I.e. ones too 

1 ne for common people it baa cea ed 

to be great ait." He does not consider 

himself a genius, but merely an Inter 

Competent critics, however, have 
praised the art st's novel form of in 
terpretation as both a new form of 
dancing and a new form of art. In 
the iMiok "Shawn, the Dancer" is writ- 
ten, "Shawn, through his creati\e dan 
• ing and pure rhythm has indeed 
raised the dance to the full dignity ol 
manhood, and, through hia conscious 
humanity, bringi to it as emotonalty 

rounded experience, thus enabling all 
to share In it. For the development 
of the intellect may belong to the few, 
b it the development of the emotions 
ihould be the heritage of mankind." 

Mr. Shawn i also an experienced 
lecturer and. aittce dissolving hssj 
troupe of dancera in IM0, ai the peak 

of its career, has travelled through 

many countries lecturing on his art 

Ittd learning about the characteristic 

dances of the nations he has visited.

Congratulations. Prexy 

The Collegian, on behalf, of the student body w shes to congratulate Presi- 
dent Baker on Ma" tenth anniversary as president of this college. 

Ten yean ago oa October 6, 1933, President Hugh P. Baker was Lnnaugur- 
ated as !">• eleventh president of Massachusetts Stale College. Since that time 
many classes of students have appreciated the friendly feeling extended to 
them by the lead ng official on campus. He lias always given a cheering 

••hell.." tu the students as he passes them on thfl way to class.'.-. II is dignity 

commands the respect of all with whom be comes in contact, His greatest 
aims have been tu further the progress of the college, to keep Its accomplish- 
ments well known tO people. 

All the students appreciate the open way in which Dr. Baker enters into the 
life .it' the campus. This year he opened his house to the freshmen for their 
recept >>n. His relationships with the faculty bring him closer to the minds 
of everyone. Always Willing to ghre his services to s worthy cause or a bud- 
ding activity, President Baker has a robust energy that is very enviable. 

The President has always maintained a broad point-of-view about the cam- 
pus and its Students. It is very easy t<> talk with h ni and iron out the prob- 
lems that arise in the everyday life «>n a college campus. 

During Dr. Maker's ten years of administration many chances have taken 
place. Several new buildings have been erected on campus th e library and 
Lewis and Thatcher Halls. The student body has increased greatly, courses 
have been expanded, and new majors added. Even the college store has chang- 
ed, the old type store merging with the former college book store. 

Since the army program has come here. President Baker has always lent 
a w Hint: hand to the administration and army alike. He has eased over the 
disruption of campus life so that there is a minimum of disturbance to the 
usual run of things. During this whole crisis, he has helped the students 
maintain a level head and a (dear attitude toward life. 

It s hoped that the President will be here for many more years to come, 

as his guidance will tx needed when the period after the war arises. In just 

mote way that he has led us quietly through the strife, so we expect him 

to show us the correct way to accept peace in all its aspects and give our 

best to maintaining its efforts. I. Si

The headlines of the October 16th 
Collegian read. "S.A.T.e. Unit Estab- 
lished at M.A.O. Campus takes an 
Aspect of a Military Camp." The arti- 
cle went on: "The academic side of

The Collegian and Communications 

The Collegian is essentially a student paper. It is writtten by students for 
the students. As such, one of its prime functions is to mirror student opinion. 
Perhaps the most effective way the Collegian can reflect this opinion is 
through student-written letters which we welcome and print under the head- 
ing Letters to the Editor. 

In past years many undergraduates have taken advantage of the opportuni- 
ty which this column affords and have expressed their opinions through it. 
We hope sincerely that this year will continue the tradition. Perhaps you have 
a new idea which you believe the administration should consider. Through 
the Collegian, you can always make your idea known. Perhaps you disagree 
with something Which appeared in the Collegian editorial page. We on the 
staff realise our limitations. We cannot possibly judge whether or not the 
student body as a whole likes or dislikes our ideas and policies unless you 
make known to us your opinions. 

There are only two requirements which letters for publication must fulfill. 
First, they must present an honest argument for or against anything or any- 
one, without hurting anyone's feelings. Second, they must be signed and 
mailed or delivered to the editor at the Collegian office. A letter may be 
printed without a signature if the writer so requests, but his identity must 
be known to the editor. 

Remember, the Collegian encourages communications as much as possible 
this year. Next time you have a bull session and arrive at some definite con- 
clusion, which you would like made known to the proper persons, write a 
letter to the Collegian. It may accomplish what you desire. Or if you have on 
your mind some suggestion or opinion that might be of interest and value to 
other students, do let them know about it. Express your opinions in letters 
to the editor. H is the only way we can fulfill our duty of representing you

Well, here I am again, with all 
kinds of news! There were big doings 
here at State this past weekend. And 
yes, the Navy, those "land lubbing 
V-12 admirals" from Trinity College 
far outnumbered any other group 
visiting State. Those present were 
Mayo Derby '45, Phil Iampietro '4a, 
.loe Stirlacci '45, Mark Landon 'do. 
and Kim Gove '45. Incidently, it is 
definitely reported by a certain prof- 
essor on campus that these boys are 
afraid of water! 

Jim Craham '42 was also to be 
found at State, and Jim tells me that 
he is studying electrical engineering 
at Brooklyn Institute in New York.

(Editor's note: This week the I .- 

teis to the Editor column repress 
one of our students, an aviation s:u- 
dent of the 68th CTD. The letter pre- 
sents a viewpoint which apparently 
is prevalent among the cadets. \\V

of the student body which is 
tirely unwarranted. For this ic 
we are printing the letter that fol-

Editor of Collegian 
Massachusetts State College 


I hope that what I have to say 
not cause any ill feelings toward 
soldiers on the part of the camptu 
co-eds. It isn't meant as a gestur. 
telling someone what is right 
what is wrong; but rather as a f. 
the student body could d<> for us. 

During our parades, my position in 
ranks is at the rear of one of 
squadrons. For that reason I 
hear almost any noise that occurs be- 
hind me. 

In the past few weeks I have heard 
girls laughing and joking with g 
other while they were watching our 
formations. It is true that we 
sanding very still and quiet, bu1 
sounds like the spectators were watch- 
ing a game of football rather th; 
group of men paying respect to . 
nation's flag. 

I have been in the Army for a 
year, and during that time I 1 
tood in many "Retreat" formations, 
.-till every! ime I hear the Nat i 
Anthem being played I get little 
chills running down my spine. 1 
a thrill that everyone concerned en- 
joys. Hut when you hear laughter anil 
joyous remarks while the National 
Anthem is being played, the thrill 
teems to disappear. 

To some of us a Retreat formation 
is sacred. We love to pay our res| 
to the flag in the same way so many 
men before us have. 

I am sure if the Co-eds knew how 
we felt, they would keep it a little) 
more quiet. 

Please don't feel that this letter is 
trying to discourage visitors. For, on 
the contrary, we like to parade before 
a good audience. It makes us feel that 
our efforts aren't being wasted. 

I would appreciate it a lot if you I 
could tell the student body what I 
have told you, and I am sure that the 
whole 5*th C.T.D. would join me in J 
my thanks.

Former Collegian Editor D wyer Reveals 
Satisfaction On Visiting State College 

"it feel., swell; there's no place 
like L," remarked Bill Dwyer, '41, 

former Collegian editor, now in the 
army, when recently asked how it 
felt to be back at MSC. Home on a 
brief furlough from Boston University 
where he is studying Italian, Bill came 
over on Monday and Thursday last 
week to visit his many friends here 
and to see the campus. 

"Of all the places I've been," he 
went on to say, "none can compare 
with this." Now a private first class. 
Bill has been in a good many pla.e- 
since his induction into the army, ten 
months ago. Before being transferred 
to Boston, he was stationed at the 
University of Utah. He had his basic 
training, a full nine day course of it, 
at Kearns, Utah. Prior to that Bill 
worked six weeks ;l t Fort Devens 
whence his army career started. 

In the course of his travels about 
•lie country Bill has met several of his 
college friends, among them some of 
the boys in the ERC who left last 
spring. Another college friend whom 
Bill was glad to meet was Bill Hatha- 
way, MSC 'II former music assistant 
and convocation organist. 

Although he never cared particular- 
ly about languages, Bill likes studying 
Italian pretty well. Having finished 
one twelve week course of the Army 
Specialised Training Program, he is 
returning to B.U. to continue his 
studies, When th,. course will be com-

Collegian Advisor 
Encourages Staff 

The temporary Collegian office, in 
the basement of Memorial Hall, was 
crowded last Thursday evening, and of those present, including the 
faculty adviser, sat on desks while 
Editor Barbara Pullan gave detailed 
nstructions about news gathering and 
writing, and issued assignments to 
the eighteen competitors, chiefly 
Meshmen, who have reported for 
Dollegian try-outs this fall. 

Urging competitors to apply them- 
selves whole-heartedly to Collegian 
work, Dr. Goldberg, at the same 
neeting, declared that the Collegian 
-hould be the means by which our 
".liege community maintains its a- 
enesi of its continually changing 
-elf, yet keeps recognising, through 
all its changes, and its variety of in- 
terests and activities, its essential one 
ess of spirit." 

The speaker likened the Collegian 
a mirror "in which we of the col-

"But above all," he remarked, "let 
the images be accurate." 

Dr. Goldberg pointed out that the 
maintenance of the Collegian as a 
lively journal of news and opinion, 
through the war period, helps give 
• all connected with Massachusetts 
State College, especially to those 
whose student careers have been in- 
terrupted by the war, a feeling of 
'inuity in spite of all the war-time 
Options, and it likewise is a valu- 
able contribution to the morale of the 
am pus. 

Music Record Club 
A Popular Service 

Symphonies in shirt sleeves and op- 
era in pajamas are gaining great pop- 
ularity at M.S.C., as shown by the 
number of records borrowed from the 
Music Record Club. 

During the past few years, the 
members of the Music Record Club 
have established a collection of over 
126 albums of both classical and semi, 
classical music. These records may be 
borrowed by Massachusetts State stu- 
[dents, the faculty, the stall', the Air 
Corps and any others interested in 
"good" musi„\ 

The collection Includes records to 

suit every taste. There are eight 
symphonies by Beethoven, ail the ma- 
jor works of Gershwin, several albums 
of Strauss walf/es, folk songs, si 
well as songs by the State dice Club. 
For those who like Nelson Eddy, Lily 
Pons, or Frit/. Kreisler, the collection 
has several volumes to offer. Peter and 
the wolf, an orchestral fairy tale by 
i rokofieff, has been especially popular 
, with students at M.S.C. These records, 
! however, are only a few of the many 
now in the collect on. ' 

Membership fees for an individual 
are $1.00 a semester or 61.60 a year, 
and for a fraternal group or dormi- 
tory. .•>•'!.<»() a year. New members may

of musical works and artists, the 
Musi,- Record Club is planning to 
purchase several new albums.

last movement, a regular third form 
rondo, was a fitting contrast to the 
other tu.. movements, with an enter 

taining hillbilly breakdown in the 
middle. Duke also made a bow to 
modern jazz when at the i-n<\ of the 
breakdown, he slid into a flat seventh. 
Of the three short pieces, the Dia- 
logue, for piano and Velio (1943), was 
the most enjoyable, and perhaps the 
best, musically speaking. Marion De 
Ronde was the 'cellist, and the com 
DO er was at the piano. They have 
played together frequently, and make 
a fine duet. The other two, Narative, 
and Fantasie, for viola, and violin re- 
spectively and piano were very 
■imiiar in both structure and mood. 
They gave one the impression 
that Duke was saying the same 
thing in different words (or Botes). 
The last composition, a Trio in D 
Major, for violin, 'cello, and piano 
(1948), was performed incomplete 
here one afternoon last Spring for 
one of the Fine Arts programs. It 
was interesting to hear the piece com- 
pleted, and note the changes that had 
been made in interpretation. It has 
improved considerably, being on the 
whole less amorphous than had been 
the former rendering. 

Still in the realm of chamber music, 
Victor has just released an excellent 
album of top notch music played 
by top notch musicians, Beethoven's 
Trio No. 7, in B flat Major (Arch- 
duke), Op. 99 is performed on Red 
Seal disks by Arthur Rubinstein, pi- 
anist; Jascha HeifetS, violinist; and 
Emanuel Feuermann, 'cellist. This is 
a most opportune recording, because 
Feuermann is no longer living. Num- 
ber two is Milhaud's Suite Provencale, 
done by the St. Louis Symphony. 

Thus for now, more notes to be 
tripped off next week; and don't for- 
get suggestions.

Food Program 
Planned Here 

The 1944 food production program 
for Massachusetts was planned at the 
conference of the Massachusetts State 
College. More than thirty representa- 
tive farmers and an equal number of 
state and federal agency representa- 
tives attended. 

The conference opened with an in- 
troduction by President Hugh P. Ba- 
ker, followed by a speech on the pur- 
pose of the conference, given by Wil- 
lard A. Munson, director of the Ex- 
tension Service at MSC and acting 
chairman of the conference in the 
absence of Charles B. Jordan. "Past 
efforts of farmers to produce food are 
the best testimony to the fact that 
they ntend to produce all they can in 
1944", said Mr. Munson, as he urged 
the farmers to produce what the na- 
tional program needs most from Mass- 

Louis A. Webtter, acting state com- 
missioner of agriculture, spoke on 
the significance of Massachusetts food 
production in wartime emergency, and 
other representatives discussed na- 
tional food requirements for 1944, 
availability of materials for produc- 
tion, availability of farm labor, and 
p ice policies and incentives. 

Si • '«n special commodity commit- 
overing every phase of agricul- 
tural production, met this morning 
to discUM such subjects as prices, 
prodi ction problem to bo solved, pro 
doctiofl in 1948 as compared with pro- 
duction in 1942, working materials, 
ami federal assistance required. 

The committee reports will be pre- 
sents! this afternoon and will be open 
for geneml discussion. An eighth com- 
mittee will study the general proce- 
dure for putting these programs into 
a coordinated plan for the state. 

War-Minded Students IR e v. Gardiner Day 
Become Apple Pickers i Speaks At Vespers 

For the past few weeks students of ( r a 


MSC have responded to the culls by 
neighboring farmers for volunteer ap- 
ple pkken. Each week about twenty- 
five men and women have joined in 
this work. 

Two mportant inducements tempt 
the student workers: good pay and 
the promise of all the apples that 
can be eaten while in the lofty perch 
of the picker. Other incentives are 
.hit transportation to and from the 
orchards is provided for by the short- 
handed owners, and that excuses from 
one or two classes cut because of this 
work are issued by the Dean's office. 
The apples harvested, both Macin- 
tosh and Baldwin, are vital to the 
food program of the state. The need 
for pickers will be urgent for a while 
yet; and the farmers in whose or- 
chards the students have worked say- 
that these nexperienced people were 
as good as many thoroughly exper- 
ienced hands. The farmers want more 
workers of the same eager type in 
addition to those who have already- 

"It is necessary to fall short of the 
ideal, 'Thou shalt not kill,' in order 
to stop the diabolical terror let loose 
upon the earth," said Reverend Gard- 
iner Day, minister of Christ Church 
(Episcopal), Cambridge, Mass., while 
speaking at the vesper service last 
Sunday. Rev. Day asserted that we 
must fight to prevent the continuing 
of the wholesale slaughter and per- 
secution going on in the world. We 
should search our soul for spots of 
prejudice, and, if necessary, cut these 
spots out with a spiritual operation. 

Rev. Day revealed the fact that 
there are Christian elements in Japan 
t a want to create a better world. 
; Continuing the discussion of a "better 
' world", he sa ; d that we should be pre- 
pared at the end of the war to shape 
a world in which the people will have 
leu chance of missing their mark 
than before.

Cafeteria Meat To Be 
Supplied By Stockbridge 

The Butterfield House dining hall 
will have an adequate supply of meat 
this year, due to the increased allot- 
ment by the Massachusetts State Col- 
lege Farm Department, of animals 
to be slaughtered. Twelve students 
from the Stockbridge school of Agri- 
culture are doing the slaughtering and 
cutting, as part of their S-5 Animal 
Husbandry Course, in the laborator- 
ies at the Abattoire. 

To aid these students, a special 
moV ie — "Meat and Romance" starring 
Alan Ladd — was shown in Stock- 
bridge Hall on Wednesday. October 
18, and will be shown to the Home 
Economics students of Massachusetts 
State College on Friday, October 15. 

Kappa Kappa Gamma 
Sells Bonds To Campus 

With the campus becoming whole- 
heartedly war bond minded, Kappa 
Kappa Oamma has initiated a new 
way to get the students interested in 
the practice of purchasing stamps or 
even bonds. Before each convocation, 
members of the sorority will sell 
stamps outside the convocation hall. 

The project got off to a flying 
start last week when Alpha Lambda 
Mu purchased enough to buy a $25 
war bond. Lee Filos, treasurer, bought 
the bond on behalf of the members. 

Kappa Kappa Gamma has asked all 
students and organizations on campus 
to co rperate w-ith this war bond drive, 
and H is expected that they will do so.

Continued frtM p4J* i 
of study, Bill worked as a psycholo- 
gist in the station hospital at Kearns, 
Utah. Here at MSC he was a psycholo- 
gy major; and during the year before 
his entrance into the army, he had 
a teaching fellowship in psychology. 

Commenting on the Collegian, Bill, 
who was editor of the paper in 1942 
and managing editor in 1941, express- 
ed his surprise and pleasure in seeing 
the paper continued. Recognizing the 
difficulties caused by the war, he had 
wondered whether there would be a 
paper this year. "I am glad you are 
carrying on," he stated. "The paper 
really looks quite good." 

When asked how he felt about 
having aviation students stationed on 
campus. Bill remarked that "it is 
good for the college" and that he is 
glad to see them here. 

As for Phi Sig, Bill's old fraternity 

well, times have changed — Bill did 

not take the time to go in and look 
it over, none of his fraternity brothers 
being "at home" at the time. 

Nevertheless, changes or no chang- 
es, Bill felt it was good to be back 
even for so short a time. "There's 
really no place like it" he concluded. 

Isogon Society 
Aids Amherst USO 

With the campus trying in every 
way to help the war effort, Isogon is 
now doing its part by aiding the Am- 
herst USO. In order to be sure that 
the town USO Center will have sev- 
eral girls present every evening, Iso- 
gon is contacting all the houses on 
campus to provide five girls each 

All the sorority houses and the 
houses on fraternity row are to be 
asked to send five girls each night, 
meaning that one night in two weeks, 
one house will be responsible. This 
does not apply to week-ends, when 
there is open house. 

No freshmen girls are to be allowed 
to attend as the USO is open from 
8:O0 to 10:00 every night and they 
would have to receive special per- 
mission. All girls who attend must 
have a USO hostess card from Miss 
Skinner's office. Any off -campus girls 
who would like to attend can get in 
touch with Marion Whitcomb at Kap- 
pa Kappa Camma.

Wise Judgment Needed 

in the good old days every national presidential election would 
create such fervor on campus that by election day the itudenti 
m re ready to come to blows in defense of the candidate they fa- 
vored. As time has passed interest in the elections has waned so 
that today, despite the fact that the coming election is one of ma- 
jor significance, very little is being said about it by the students 
on campus. The question is don't we care about the election or 
is it just that we don't know enough about it to show any interest. 

If the crux of the matter is that MiSC students do not care about 
the election it is time that we realized we ought to care. Our sweet- 
hearts, our husbands, our brothers, fathers, and friends who now 
are fighting all over the world are coming home again some day- 
soon, we hope. What kind of America do we want them to come 
borne to? Do we want them to return to unemployment, to pover- 
ty because no servicemen's relief money has been provided, to 
physical disability without provision for recovery to health, to 
a government full of abuses? They must not come home bitter and 
disillusioned. They must know that their fighting has not been in 
vain Our future will be determined to a great extent by the out- 
come of the November election. The policy of Roosevelt and the 
Democrats or of Dewey and the Republicans or whosoever comes 
into power will affect tremendously the role of the United States 
in the peace settlement and in the postwar international world, and 
will guide the direction which plans for conversion to peacetime 
life will take. 

It is not even being hinted that by putting into office any one 
particular party in preference to the others that a Utopia will re- 
sult—that the world will be peaceful forever and everyone well- 
provided for and happy. It is just being urged that we think care- 
fully before voting and do our best to put into office the men and 
party which will bring us closest to the Utopian ideal. 

The problem is to decide just who is the best man for the office 
—for whom to vote or whom to support if we are not of voting 
age. It is important that we listen to arguments on both sides of 
the question, that we find out all the facts for ourselves, that we 
weigh the matter carefully and then come to an unbiased decision. 
A judgment based on what one's farther thinks or on a single 
speech heard on the radio, or a few pictures in a newsreel, or some 
other minor bit of evidence is unfair to the candidates and to 
oneself. A more accurate basis of judgment is needed. Such a 
basis or part of it will be provided at the political forum to be held 
tonight in Stockbridge Hall. While a strong Democrat and an ar- 
dent Republican, each of whom is naturally prejudiced in favor 
of his own party, will be the main speakers at this forum, close 
attention to the speeches of both men should give one reasonably 
fair and accurate knowledge of important facts and something 
dependable on which to base judgment in deciding for whom to 

Remember, the outcome of the November elections is vital. 
We must be concerned by it : we must see that the best man wins 
and to do this we must have accurate knowledge to guide our de- 
cisions and serve as a basis for our opinions. The political forum 

tonight should be particularly helpful. 


Dedicated to the Seniors 
Break, break, break, 
This terrible monotony, oh boys! 
And I would that my tongue could ut- 
The thoughts that arise in me. 

Oh well, for the kaydets who wan- 
Through flutterfield's stately halls; 
Oh well, for the seventeen year olds 
Who play the Abbey's mall! 

But what of the girls of twenty-one 
Forced to pay their own bills? 
O for the touch of a vanished hand, 
And the sound of a voice so still! 

Oh well I'll grind, 

I'll study and sigh and wait; 

And when the spring comes round a- 

With honor! I'll graduate. 

Break, break, break, 

Give the breaks to the freshmen, oh 

The tender grace of the days gone 

\v ill soon come l>aek. <> Joy!

Thii is the time when everyone is 
"two tired to study", when all the 
profs are assigning the first hour ex- 
ams, and upper classmen are wonder- 
ing if they can live through phys. ed. 
until Thanksgiving. Since our files 
of exams won't help anyone, and al- 
though we are taking Bows and Ar- 
rows for the fifth time, our high 
score is 11, Donkeydust and I want 
to help you with that tired feeling. 
The best way to avoid that "run- 
down" feeling is to be careful while 
crossing the street. Now to help all 
of you who have not \aj-itten your 
parents for so long that you're get- 
ting short of cash, we give you the 
following which can be clipped and 
placed in an envelope. You can spend 
the half hour you'd usually spend

she's there),

The WSGA Council held its weekly 
meeting last Thursday evening in the 
Memorial Building. 

Carol Goodchild, chairman of the 
Mountain Day committee submitted 
her report on the investigation of 
holding a Mountain Day this fall. For 
several reasons it was decided that it 
would be unadvisable to have one 
this year. 

It was decided that only house- 
mothers can give girls special per- 
missions. A girl requesting a special 
permission must have her housemoth- 
er indicate on the signing out sheet 
that such permission has been granted. 

A person who does not appear be- 
before the Judiciary Board at the prop- 
er time will be penalized by receiv- 
er one demerit for one week's de- 
lay in appearing, two demerits for 
two weks delay, etc. If attendance 
at the Juliciary hearing is impos- 
sible, anyone who should appear must

be a curtailment of sports because of 
a lack of men students. The girls can 
take over, as they've done right at 
Massachusetts State. 

The hockey season is well under way 
and many an MSC coed is enjoying 
hitting her opponent on the head or 
hearing the referee yell "Sticks" at 
her. Practice sessions take place on 
Tuesday and Thursday afternoons at 
1:80 p.m. Coming games of impor- 
tance are: Coeds vs. freshman boys, 
Saturday, October 28; a sorority game, 
.n which members of three sororities 
m one team will play against the other 
lire j sororities, Thursday, November 
1; coeds vs. professors, Saturday, No- 
ember 4; coeds vs. Acers, Saturday, 
November 11, and coeds vs. sopho- 
more men, Saturday, November 18. 
The WAA invites and urges the pub- 
ic to attend these Saturday games. 

The result of the first field hockey 

•anie last Saturday afternoon was a 

lecisive 1-1 victory for the upperclass- 

■ (I mean gals!) over the nesh- 

ien. But the froth came tnrough on 

heir second try.

The MSC informal "six man" foot- 
tall teams were unfortunately rained

ill be at it again this week on Tues.,

I- torn oheerving the practices up to

I ick Lee, former player at Worces-

Minneapolis, Min.-(CP) - Dr. Edgar 
15. Wesley of the University of Minne- 
sota suggests American schools reor- 
ganize the teaching of history to 
break it down for various levels of 

Teaching of history should center 
around certain specified names, dates, 
• vents, concepts and skills for the 
various school levels, so that the same 
material will not be repeated from 
year to year, the professor holds. 

Dr. Wesley points out many cities 
have adopted a reorganized plan under 
which elementary students study "how 
people live," junior high pupils "build- 
ing of the nation" and senior high 
pupils "a democratic nation in a 
world setting."

Planned This Year 

There will he no Mountain Day this 

year, according to an a unceinent 

recently made by Carol Goodchild, 
chairman of the Mountain Day com- 
mittee, which worked through the 
WSGA. Due to transportation diffi- 
culties, the accelerated program, and 

the lateness of the season, it seemed 
unadusahle to plan a Mountain Day 
this year.

Students May Attend 
Meeting On Negro Life 

All students interested in attending 
the meeting of the Association for the 
Study of Negro Life and History this 

week-end, October 27-29, should see 

Prof. J. Henry Koi son, of the sociology 
department or consult the Sociology 
Bulletin Hoard in Old Chapel. 

This '2!>th annual association meet- 
ing will be held at the Teacher's Col- 
lege of the City of Boston, in Boston, 

The association has been most active 
in the spreading of educational mate- 
rial about the negro and in helping oth- 
ers to understand the negro and his 
background. The historical approach 
to the negro problem is used by the as- 
sociation in its work.

Hy the time the rumpus raisers 
reached Benny's, the sophomores de- 
cided that they'd had enough, and 
headed for peace and quiet over a cup 
of coffee in the diner. 

since the torchlight parade proved 

so successful this year, such parades 
will probably he held again in other 
years as the closing event of hazing 
week, with this year's parade setting 
the precedent. The usual annual pond 
party, which brought hazing week to 
a close in former years will probably 
be discontinued with the advent of 
this successful torchlight parade.

us Houses Victims 
Of Daylight Thieves 

Thieves on the State campus re- 
called the excitement of a year ago 
when they successfully raided several 
of the campus houses during the past 
week. Last year the robberies were 
accomplished at night, but this year 
the thieves did their work in day- 
light while girls were at classes, or 
all the house members were at meals. 
Because jewelry and money were sto- 
len, and because the thievery occurred 
during the day, the general opinion 
has it that the thieves must have 
been women. Otherwise, a house could 
not have been unsuspiciously entered.

The pertinent question this week 
is "What is your opinion of hazin> 
as it is on the Massachusetts Stat* 
College campus?" 

Jean Thomas '4."> — Hazing is a good 
idea since the upper classmen lean. 
who the freshmen are and the fresh- 
men learn to know many of the upper 
classmen, at least the sophomores. It 
gives the freshmen a feeling of unit\ 
to be suffering together. 

Hetty Hates '45 — If the upperclass 
men don't go too far, it's a way foi 
the freshmen to get acquainted with 
them. After all it is traditional am 
we need all the tradition we can get 

Anne Tillon '46— When I was 
.reshman 1 liked it. It affords 
ciiance for the freshmen to meet up 
per classmen. 

Hilda Scaetaberg '47 — Ha/in 

should be kept up because of th. 
tradition behind it. In later years the 
freshmen will be glad to look bar, 
on it as pleasant memories. This 
rear's basing was very successful. A 
torchlight parade should be held ev- 
ery year. 

Anne KeOttgfc ' 48 1 didn't mind, but 
i'm glad they didn't hold it over any 
i nger. I just wish I one "f the fresh 
. .ifii had obeyed the rules better. 

Teresa Orlandella '48 — Hazing can 
be fun if you go at it the right wa\ 
It depends on the attitude of the 
classes involved. 

Alice Walton '47 — I don't approve 
of it, since I see nothing gained. In the 
first few weeks of college adjustments, 
it is very inconvenient.

Collegian Meeting 

A Collegian meeting will be 
held next Wednesday, November 8 
at 7:<i0 p.m. in the commuter's 
room at Memorial Hall. All pres- 
ent members of the editorial staff 
and all who were on the staff at 
the end of last year or the first 
of this year should attend. 

After listening to both sides of the 
q uest io n on the 1944 election, State 
College students voted in favor of the 

Republican candidate, Thomas E. Dew- 

ey, at the political forum held last 
Thursday night in Bowker Auditori- 
um. The results of a straw vote were 
Dewey, 104 and Roosevelt, 75. The 
non-student vote was 21 for Dewey 
and 18 for Roosevelt. 

Congressman Joseph A. Casey and 
Mr. I). J. St. Germain, president of 
the Republican Club of Massachusetts 
were the main speakers. Mr. Casey, 
democrat, brought out the point that 
an experienced commander in chief 
would hasten the winning of the war. 
He also stated that the Republican 

party criticizes the New Ileal and yet 
has put forth no plans to change the 

actual policies of government. 

Mr. St. Germainc, republican, criti 
cized the excessive ipending of the 
Democratic party even before the war 

started. II.- also aid that 8..',' of the 
Americans were isolationists before 

the war so that stigma should not be 
applied to Republican! alone. To back 

Up this information he quoted from 
speeches of President Roosevelt's be 
fore 1940. 

After the regular speeches of twen 
ty minutes each, the speakers depart 

ment had a five minute rebuttal period. 
An informal period of questions from 
the floor followed 

Dr. Philip I.. Gamble, of th. 
chology department traduced the 

the speakers. The forum was sponsored 

by the United Religious Council.

A Singing Campus 

Whenever ■ group el state studenti gather together informally, 
before many minutei have passed, someone starts a song —and 
they're off. An evening of tinging follows. Sooner or later the 
songa of our college come to somebody's mind and words of the 
medley are boisterously flung forth 'til ".....yoke's Hills prolong 
the strain." Usually "Twilight Shadows" and the Alma Mater fol- 
low Then comes the pause-what to sing? Here's where the sen- 
iors shine; they begin several songs one after the other, but soon 
even the senior memory needs prodding and the music grows thin 
in spots as people forget and confuse words and phrases and their 
positions. Only by asking "What's the song that . ?" Can a few of 
the souks be brought to mind, then a different type of song is 

turned to. , 

In the meantime what have the juniors, sophomores, and fresh- 
men been doing? The juniors carry on through most of the song 
missing a few words now and then, but a few songs such as "There 
is a Certain Valley". "As Jolly Students We March Along", or 
"Men of Massachusetts." are known by only a small number of jun- 
iors or are not known at all. The sophomores know still less, and 
the freshmen have gone valiantly through the medley, the Alma 
Mater, and "Twilight Shadows", they give up in despair on such a 
thing as "Fight for the Team, Team, Team " 

The reasons why our college songs have become so poorly known 
are obvious. Fight songs and rally songs died out with football and 
basketball games. Hazing for both freshmen men and women has 
become more lenient, and morning serenades are less frequent. 
With the men away from college songs seem to be sung less often 
and occasions for singing are fewer. First year students have not 
been taught more than two or three fundamental songs. 

Does our unfamiliarity with MSC songs make any real 
difference? Indeed it does. We must keep alive the song tradition 
on campus— songs that have been sung for years with joy and 
pleasure are valuable; they must continue to be sung. When the 
boys return they expect to hear again the songs they knew as 
st udents before the war. Colleges are all known for their own in- 
dividual repertoires of songs. Let's not forget ours. Lastly, it is 
fun to know and sing all of one's college songs. It is an everlasting 
pride and joy, one that can never be taken from one. 

What can' be done so that MSC students will know their college 
so „jrs— all of them? Teach song words and music before convoca- 
tion, devote a Whole convocation to college songs, have community 
sings like the one held during Freshman Week, continue having 
serenades during hazing week, include college souks whenever 
possible in informal gatherings Of campus organizations, have up- 
perclassmen teach underclassmen in the various campus houses, 
listen to the MSC Glee Club records, in short, learn the songs by 
singing them. It is well worth the effort. 

Sound the dirge. The inevitable has 
cunt' to pass and Donkeydust is with 
us BO mow. It is with deep emotion 
that we take printer in hand— why, 
Hani! to bring you his death notice 
and obituary. It is hard to believe, but 
stark print on white paper finally 
brings the realization to our conscious- 
ness. Donkeydust has passed into the 
Great Beyond— at least beyond us. 

Campus is mourning. Already com- 
petition for bier sours is well under- 
way. "The Stein Song" and "Little 
Brown Jug" are running; head and 
head. All other original contributions 
will be accepted by those who can 
be admitted to the bar. Grand Prize: 
one on the house. 

We will miss the activities of the 
late lamented in many ways. Every- 
one remembers the midnight chimes 
of last May. It was a step of which he 
was always very proud. Upperclass 
women have been known to blame 
him directly for the presence of the 
Sheared Heavers on campus. Of course 
every Freshman knows that MSC does 
not stand for Master-Singer Crosby, 
but that's what I)t told Frankie. Now 
the Voice refuses to appear at our 
Concert Series. Plug. He has also had 
Several run-ins with the Junior G-men 
of this precinct over the annual rob- 
beries, but like too many questionable 
character, lie died a natural death due 
to cessation of wind. The ugly rumor 
that this distortion of the imagination 
succumber to malnutrition, pernicious 
spinich, or chronis boiled potatoes is 
grossly unfounded. Can we help it if 
the little fellow was allergic? Also 
asphixiation, which might occur in 
that area between Goessnian and Dra- 
per, had nothing to do with it. This 
statement is according to a usually 
reliable source the Medical Chief of 
Staff of the local C o rps e Area. 

Last writes will be admnistered by 
that Clever Girl who devoted the 
maelstrom of her life be his welfare. 
Mis friends may view the remains in 
the "Collegian" files at any time. The 
eulogy will be delivered for intimates 
by the scheduled speaker at convoca- 
tion on the mezzanine of Stockbridge 
Hall. The usual attendance will be 
expected . 

We will close with a paraphrase on 
those words by our immortal Friend, 
Patron, and Rhapsodist, who created 
such enduring city directories. To wit: 
We have come to bury Donkeydust; 
not to praise him.

1 Noting As A Duty 

The U. S. Constitution declares voting not merely a "privilege", 

'm,' a Right, hence a Civic Duty. "Every patriotic American is 

„ t-i-dlv glad to show our fighters under arms that the men and 

n >n rhe home front can do their duty as conscientously and 

their country." 

It is our duty to cast a vote on 
election day if we are eligible. It is 
still not too late to get an absentee 
ballot. For details see the October 26 

Collegian. Express your choice on 
election day and get a truly repre- 
the men and women on the war fronts. Whether sentative government, the right for 
true Americans will not fail in their duty towhich our armed forces are fighting. 

Here we go again, another week and 
all kinds of news! ] 

"Time Magazine" for September 25, 
HI44, on page 71 reported briefly the 
first sample of ruling conquered Ger- 
man territory, with Civil Affairs Offi- 
cer, Captain Gordon F. Thomas in 
charge, at Roetgen near Aachen. Cap- 
tain Thomas graduated from State in 
'40. His latest job for Uncle Sam is 
that of "judge, mayor and military 
boss" at Roetgen. 

First Lieut. Haig Koobatian '42 
writing from Italy on August 81 re- 
ported that he had recently finished] 
his r>0 missions and is on a non-com- 
bat status, expecting- to be returned to 
the States for a while. His two last 
missions included covering the inva- 
sion of southern France and finally 
the death blow to the Ploesti oil re- 
fineries. However, since then, Huck 
has visited State and he is sporting 
ribbons which indicate a medal and 
three Oak Leaf Clusters with battle 
stars in three areas, concerning which 
he volunteers very little information. 
Second Lieut. Chester Putney '41 
wrote from India on September 9. His 
"military" information was confined 
to his recreation, such as riding ele- 
phants. He also states that he is "fed 
up" on monsoons. 

Lieut. Henry H. Jackson '45 re- 
ceived his commission early in Sep- 
tember and after a brief furlough 
went to Kingman, Arizona, for further 
aviation training in the B-17 squadron. 
Lieul. Nicholas L. Caraganis '4.'? in 
a letter dated September 20, 1944, and 
written from somewhere in Now Guin- 
ea gives us very little news. He adds 
the following statement: "During the 
past few months I have lost all con- 
tact with most of the men in my class 
so I would appreciate it greatly if you 
would say hello to everyone for me." 
"I was surprised to read that I'm 
in the Signal Corps, and quite amazed 
to find myself stationed at Camp Gru- 
ber," writes Lieut. Bernie Vitkauskas 
'48. "I don't know where you gathered 
that information, but that doesn't 
apply to me. The truth of the matter 
is — I'm still in a mechanized squadron 
and I've never been at Camp Gruber. 
Tell you what though, your data does 
apply to Lieut. Robert Rocheleau — he 
was at Gruber for a time, but has 
since been shipped overseas. 

Here's one you can believe or not — 

I had been stationed here (Camp Polk,

I went to see my advisor to. lay I 
gee, is he nice! I didn't know what I 
was supposed to advise m< OH Snd 
I started to ask him what I should 
about you, and whether or not 
should join the army or navy. Gee Ol 
how did I know I was supposed to a 
him about studies? 

Honest Osc, I know I'm going to 
disgrace us all. He told me I'm 01 
below in three subjects and low in two, 
and I have suitcases under my eye ! 
Tell Uncle Jake to please send 
some of that cider he made in 19 
Honest Osc, I've got to stay awake 

Osc! do you know what a hypoi 
tyle is? Honest, that's the stuff you 
learn. Already I feel educated! I'd tell 
you what it is only I can't explain 

We had a Torch Light Parade la>t 
week Osc, and tho' I'm not trying to 
make you jealous or anything I had 
four (4) cadets walking with me. Hon- 
est Osc, it's enough to turn a gj 
bead! And Saturday night I had three 
invitations to the dance, < I'm not t 
ing to make you jealous Osc), and I 
accepted two, but one broke his 
and couldn't go. 

Osc, I have something to tell y 

I've gained fifteen pounds but I'm 
a diet so you don't have to worry. A'

was going to start Tuesday, but 
bad cake with chocolate sauce 
Wednesday we bad icecream with

We had a play day Saturday Osc, 
and we played volley ball with the

agine playing ball with Miss Twit, 
back in high school? This place I 
so democratic! Well anyhow, Osc, ' 
BOCked the German prof right ii

Firemen Harassed By 
Halloween Pranksters 

by Rosemary Speer '47 

Halloween pranksters were up to 
their usual tricks on Tuesday evening. 

Shortly after 8:00 p.m. the campus 

was aroused by fire engines rushing 

toward the Abbey. The blaze they had 

been called out to quell was a bonfire 

of leaves in the middle of the road in 

front of that dorm. Crowds of students 

and "acers" gathered to watch the 

iremen at work, and just after the 

daze was extinguished and the fire- 

nen had gone back to Amherst another 

ire mysteriously broke forth up by 

he Physics building. The firemen re- 

urned grudgingly again to answer 

the alarm. When ten minutes later an- 

>ther fire was discovered at the cross- 

oads near the Abbey, the long-suf- 

'■ring fire chief could bear it no longer. 

froth he, "*$!" & "*!", will you never 

row up?" Quoth the harried house- 

lother, Mrs. Broughton, "Don't you 

now- you can't build a fire without 

a permit?" Undisclosed sources report 

hat the leaf piles had been soaked 

ith kerosene. Maybe it wasn't acci- 

ental after all! 

Another prank victim was Kay Tul- 

. director of the college news ser- 

' ice. She went to climb into her car 

I nd found it filled to the roof with 

aves. Leaf us have no more of this! 

Moving bicycles into shelter all over 

impus heralded the approach of the

25 Coeds Join Naiads 
At Initiation Ritual 

The Naiads conducted their first 
initiation ceremony last night, Wed- 
nesday, November 1, when 26 girls 
became members of the swimming elub. 
Five joined the senior division of the 
Naiads, and 20 formed the new junior 

The initiation was divided into two 
parts — formal and informal. The for- 
mal candle light ceremony began the 
initiation. It was followed by an in- 
formal and comic program which fea- 
tured obstacle races in the pool. The 
climax of this part of the ceremony was 
a plunge into the water by all members. 

There are now 45 members of the 
Naiads Club making it the largest it 
has ever been. There are 25 senior- 
Naiads, and twenty of the newly or- 
ganized Naiads. 

The club's program plans for the 
coming year are now well under way. 
Roth groups plan to work individually 
on form, lacing, games, and original 
formations. Together they will pre- 
sent two water ballets this year, one 
at Christmas time and another in the 

The Naiads also plan to hold inter- 
rlass and inter-house swimming meets 
in which all girls on campus may par- 

The officers of the senior Naiads 
are Carolyn Whitmore, manager; Jean 
Gould, secretary; Lois Banister, trea- 
surer; and Miss Shirley Winsberg, ad- 
visor. The junior club will elect officers 
at their next meeting. These officers 
will be responsible to the heads of the 
senior group. 

Naiad meetings are held every Wed- 
nesday evening at the pool at 7 :00 p.m. 
for the senior division, and 8:00 p.m. 
for the junior. 

Soon after Christmas the club will 
conduct try-outs again, so that the jun- 
iors may become senior Naiads and 
so that other girls may become mem- 
bers of the club. 

The girls who were initiated into the 
Naiads are as follows: senior group — 
Edith Dover, Jean Bergeron, Frances 
White, Constance Scott, and Pat Jen- 
nings; junior group — Lois Ransom, 
Fran Freedenberg, Helen Stanley, 
Phyllis Brunner, Ruth Russell, Bar- 
bara Dower, Millie Benson, An- 
Sellew, Marg-o Corson, Bobbie Howard. 
Bobbie Smith, Dorothy Hurlock, and 
Lois Russell. 

While all the major gridirons of the 
Fast wore occupied by tens of thou- 
sands <>f people observing the top 
intercollegiate games of the day, MSC 
received its first introduction to "six 
man" football. Although this brand 
of foul hall in no way measures up to 
pre wartime standards, it nevertheless, 
emulates the same spirit, the same 
light that took place in Ann Arbor, 
Yankee Stadium, of any place where 
eleven men battled each other. 

On hand to watch these informal 
games were a small handful of stu 
dents who realized that their time 
Would he well Spent. 

In the first game of the afternoon, 
the "Green's", captained hy |{,,h Gray, 
defeated the "Hlue's", led by Al Gor 
ing, 20-X. The scoring started off with

"'' the woi Id" was the subjeel of the 

lecture presented Tuesday evening hy 

Professor Alphonse Zorenkamp of the 
Smith College Ait Department The 

lecture, first of the series to he spoil 
sored by the Ceiman club, was well 
attended b\ students, faculty, and 

friends of Professor SSorenkatnp, 

When you hear that the Nether

r. nkamp, "do not believe it. Only

fighting now is to clear out the mouth 

of the river leading to Antwerp, so 

that the great value of thai port to the 
allies may be fully realized.

enkamp, "has heen a constant battle

However, the "Green's" wore not to 
be denied, for they capitalized on a 
fumble by the "Blue's" in their own 
zone, and converted it into a counter. 
Thus, the score remained tied with 
both teams apparently on an equal 
footing. But in the third quarter, the 
"GreenV tricky running and passing 
game soon gave indication that they 
would score again. On a 25 yard end 
run, Weinstetn put the "Green" a- 
head, 14-8; and Capt. Gray ended the 
scoring for his team by tossing a 
long pass to Smith who loped over 
for a touchdown.

The second game of the afternoon 
proved to be a runaway for Capt. 
Dick Lee's team which won by the 
score of 45-0. The slight opposition 
that was provided came from Stock* 
bridge, a weaker team than previous- 
ly indicated. On the other hand, the 
high score can be partially accredited 
to Dick Lee and his teammates, who , ,,ther 
proved that afternoon that they have 
by far one of the best teams in the 

Superbly combining offensive block- 
ing and shifty running, these boys re- 
peatedly broke away for long runs 
and were able to score seven touch- 
lowns. The high scorer and star play- 
er of the afternoon was Dick Lee, 
who scored three touchdowns. He was 

been destroyed many times when tin 
warring countries of Spain, England, 

France, and Germany have used it as 
a battleground. 

As he talked, I'rofessor Zorenkamp 
showed slides illustrating the develop- 
ment of Brabant art in the medieval 

and renaissance periods. The earliest 
of the pictures shown depicted clear- 
ly the medieval philosophy that "saints 
were of the family of common people, 

Heaven was oppressively near and Hell 

close at hand". In these pictures, saints 
and religious figures were depic te d as 
ordinary earth-born people. In direct 
contrast to this idea were the pictures 
of the age of discovery. With the real 
ization that world was a larger place, 
space was born, and the saints with- 
drew from the earth to a more dil 
tant Heaven. This was clearly shown 
by the pictured idealization of saints 
and religious figures as heavenly be 
ings, no longer as common people. The 
ruling families of Europe and the ar- 
chitecture of Brabant were also pic- 
tured in the slides. 

Professor Zorenkamp concluded his 

lecture by showing some of the sym- 
bolic portraits by Von Breughel, Flem- 
ish painter of about 1560.

Francis Addresses 
Quarterly Group 

Robert Francis, one of the Amherst 
poets, was the guest speaker at the 
first meeting of the Quarterly Club, 
held last Friday night in the old Chap- 
el Auditorium. 

Mr. Francis chose as his topic the 
discussion of the poem "Spring Pools" 
by Robert Frost. According to Mr. 
Francis, contemporary poetry is usu- 
ally not read carefully or searching- 
ly; the reader almost always skips 
through it, getting only quick impres- 
sions. To illustrate what can be got- 
ten from contemporary poetry, Mr. 
Francis analyzed "Spring Pools" 
thoroughly and told the audience of 
some sixty people just what he found 
in the poem. 

Besides discussing that one poem, 
Mr. Francis mentioned some of the 
characteristics of poetry in general, 
ami Robert Frost's in particular. Re- 
petition, which often makes up about 
fifty per cent of poetry, is used by 
Mr. Frost to make his pictures and 
ideas more vivid and more effective. 
Mr. Frost is a lover of people, which 
tends to make him like to use personi- 
fication a great deal. However, he is 
also a great believer in the truth. In 
order to combine these two traits and 
to satisfy both, he has acquired the 
ki.ack of using cautiously very sub- 
tle or hinted personification. 

When Mr. Francis finished discuss- 
iiii' "Spring Pools," he read some of his 
own poetry including " The Wasp", 
•The Serpent and the Vine", and 
"True North". He remarked that while 
almost everyone has high thoughts, it 
is only the poet who bothers to put 
them down. 

Mr. Francis was introduced by \>v. 
William C. O'Donnell of the English 
department. Mr. Francis autographed 
copies of his bonks. 

Dr. Goldberg, the faculty advisor 
to the club, opened the meeting by ex- 
plaining to those present the purpose 
and activities of the Quarterly, the 
Quarterly Club, and the Editorial 
Board of the magazine. The purpose 
of the club is to stimulate creative 
writing and criticism. The club hopes 
to be able to have some of the other 
Amherst authors speak at future open 

Varied Movie Program 
Will Be Shown By WIS 

Wartime life in Britain, a mystery 
thriller, and a lovely songtress will be 
featured in the movies which will be 
presented at the "Little Cinema 
House", Room 20 Stockbridge Hall 
next week, November 7, 8, and 9. 

One of the most unusual of these 
films will be "Listen to Britain", in 
which the audience does just that — 
listens to a poetivc presentation of the 
British people at work, at play, and at 
war. There is practically no narration 
to this picture, the audience merely 
listens to Britain itself. 

"Know Your Ally, Britain", the sec- 
ond English film, depicts life in Bri- 
tain as it is today. It was filmed es- 
pecially for the benefit of U. S. Sol- 
diers who have gone and will go there. 
In forty-two minutes the film illus- 
trates how Britain conducts her busi- 
ness and hints at why Britain is as 
it is. 

Both these British films will be 
shown on Tuesday, November 7, at 
10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. 

"Blame It On Love", and "The Glass 
Case", a mystery thriller will be the 
other two films of the week. The first 
movie, "Blame It On Love" will fea- 
ture the popular songstress Joanne 
Marsh. "The Glass Case" is a real 
"Whodunit" picture, mystifying the 
audience all through its sixty suspense- 
filled, action-packed minutes. 

These last two pictures will be pre- 
sented on two days, November 8 and 9 

Wednesday at 11 :00 a.m. and 8:00 p. 
m. and Thursday at 9:00 a.m. and

A new quartet of Statesmen, the 
first in two years, made its debut at 
the Glee Club rehearsal last Tuesday 
night. The new Statesmen are Ted 
Blank '47, bass; Chester Falby '48, 
baritone; Elliot Schwartz '48, first 
tenor ;and Charles Robitaille '48, sec- 
ond tenor. 

At the rehearsal, where Doric Al- 
viani introduced them, the Staesmen 
sang some arrangements of negro 
spirituals, and a State College song. 
It is expected that the quartet will 
make frequent appearances both a- 
lone and with the Women's Glee Club. 

The question before the MSC public 
this week is: Should freshmen who are 
low or below in scholastic standing by 
the middle of the first semester be giv- 
en supervised study periods. 
Cynthia Foster "47— It wouldn't do 
any good. If you can't make the grade 
on your own, you don't belong in 

Fred West '45 — I believe in supervised 
study from the beginning of the fresh- 
man year to the end. It is a very good 
idea. Only those who have gone to a 
prep school have really learned how to 
study. Of course it could be carried out 
in a dorm where there were freshmen 

Helen Timson '46— I don't believe in 
it. Part of your college experience is 
learning self-adjustment. Students 
should be able to go to their advisors 
for help. 

Sheldon Mador '45— Students know the 
responsibilities are on their own shoul- 
ders, but if they can't pass by the 
middle of the first semester, there 
should be some kind of guidance for 

Betty Lu Tolman '48— Yes, since we 
don't concentrate very much. If we're 
failing it shows we can't study well 
enough and need help. 
John Mastalerz '18— No, because if a 
person is failing he should have e- 
nough initiative to get ahead by him- 

Carolyn Kimhach '45 — I don't believe 
in supervised study. The freshmen 
should be given a chance to participate 
in campus activities. Even if they were 
made to study at a certain time under 
supervision, some of them would sit 
and dream. 

Rosamond Cushway and Anne Ciashi- 
m '48 — Yes, it is only for their own 
good. I never knew how to study in 
high school. There's so much to do 
on campus that we never get around to 
loing our homework. We usually do 
the flunking subject last because we 
like it the least and then we're too 
tired. If we had to do the failing sub- 
ject under supervision, we would do 

Jim Falvey '47 — Yes, but the college 
should wait until Dean's Saturday. If 
the student is failing then, the college 
should have enough interest in him to 
help him along. Some people fail be- 
cause they don't know how to study.

Mr. Frost stated that poetrv is both written solely to express a momentary

teaches the theory of learning to enjoy 
people that you don't like. 

The audience was kept chuckling by 
Frost witticisms. One of his favorite 
pastimes, he said, was to take a nar- 
row-minded person and tell him with 
enjoyment about people he couldn't

Help Wanted' 

With the advance of the Japanese armies in southwest China, 
come reports of the continued destruction of Chinese universities 
Which have already migrated four or five times, the continued 
tree* of thousands of students still farther west, and the killing 
or capture of many students. To provide for the emergency needs 
of thousands of students who have been and are being affected by 
war situations, the World Student Service Fund needs contribu- 
tions ihis year more than ever before. 

The United War Fund, an organization wheh includes approx- 
imately two hundred different charities, among them the UfeO, 
United Relief agencies, Refugee Relief Trustees, and War Prison- 
ei - Aid obviously has a tremendous need for money now that the 
war is so total and so far advanced. The value of its work is un- 

Both the Red Cross and the Infantile Paralysis Fund are so well 
known and established, that their reputation "for good work, well 
done" requires no further building up. 

Gump Anderson, the camp in Pelham for poor children of Am- 
herst ind nearby towns, also needs money if it is to continue and 
to increase the services which it is rendering to the people of this 
vif inity 

Thil ear the Campus Community Chest is dividing the money 
we students contribute for social welfare work among the organ- 
isation! mentioned above. The list, it is to be admitted, is pure y 
an arbitrary one; hundreds of other charities are perhaps equally 
deserving of our support. However, as it has been drawn up, this 
list is quite representative; every organization on it really needs 
our help We are all being called upon to support the work of these 
essential organizations by contributing to the 1944 MSC Communi- 
\ y ( Iheet Fund. Let's give the support required and make our Drive 
a duress Let's contribute as much as we possibly can and do our 
, ,rt on the home front, small though it may be, thus compensating 
in some flight degree for the vast amount of unselfish work being 
done by those we love on the battle fronts.

"Come Jo — sephine 
On the campus machine 
And it's 'round we'll get '—but nor 
very far! 
We are running for president. But 
we can't say "It's time to make a 
change", because we just have; and 
we can't say "We are indespensable", 
because we're hardly over twelve oui - 
selves. Nor can we run on the prohibi- 
tion ticket, for several reasons: (I J 
iappa Grandonieo won't love us, (2> 
the WCTL' will be put out of commis- 
sion and where would all those low.; 
people devote their excess energies': 
{:>,) we might win. 

In an effort to appeal to all elasSfl - 
we have formulated the following plat- 
form. Plank by pla..k, here it is — solid 
as the doughnuts at the C store. Take 
it for what it's worth; we've had our 
Coffey, now let's K«'t OB with the puns. 

Plank 1. For all freshman girls, we 
promise lessons by that snootful of 
manhood, The Lieutenant. 
I 'lank 2. For the men of '48, "Detailed 
Instructions OB How to Trap and 
Shear Heavers" by the younger set on 

I'lank :*. For the upperclass men we 
promise not to force Sen-Sen on them 
SO they can continue to effectively 
ward off the advances of an ever- 
i nc leasing female population. 
I'lank 1. For the student body in gen- 
eral we promise construction of level 
campus, and an Armstrong heater to 
all applicants. 

Flank 5. For upperclass women, a unit 
of Navy V-12 uniforms for drooling 
purposes only. (Shh-h, but really the 
only change in personnel is going to be 
the 817 new Shearlings, come Janu- 

Flank 5. For the faculty, we promise 
one elk's tooth — there must be hun- 
dreds of them lying around after the 
Elks get through with them (Do you 
lave Denture Breath ? ) — to replace 
all those lost in the hockey game. 

In conclusion, let us assure our ar- 
dent readers, you who have stood by 
us through misprints, defamation of 
character, and those other things that 
come to your mind quicker than to ours 
that come Storm and Stress, Dean's 
Saturday or Mountain Day, we will 
back our program to the hilt. We be- 
lieve in individual enterprise, freedom 
of the press, smaller blue books, re- 
strictions where they are needed (like 
"nothing can stop the Army Air 
Corps" ), and the mediocrity of media 
in which to express all aesthetic ideas, 
i In these parting remarks we are try- 
ing to emulate our esteemed colleague, 
that Great Democrat, the Honorable 
Joseph Casey of Boston and Wash- 
ington. Long may we rave!! (

Post-Be ction Thought 

The elei ti<»n is over. Franklin L). Roosevelt is to be our president 
for Ihe next four years. We, the people of the United States, have 
chosen Mr. Roosevelt to be our leader in the difficult days that lie 
ahead ot us. Many of US would have preferred to see Mr. Dewey 
lake office But in a democracy the majority rules, and Mr. Roose- 
velt has wm that majority and the election. 

It is now our duty to forget party differences and to support loy- 
ally the man whom we have elected to be our president. Some of our 
opinions may perhaps differ from his, but actually we all are striv- 
ing for the same basic goals— rapid conclusion of the war, efficient 
C( aversion to peace time life, the four freedoms, and the contin- 
uance of democracy as our fundamental social, economic, anc 1 poll- .net 
tical principle. Therefore let us be united in our drive toward the

On Wednesday students of the 
Stockbridge School of Agriculture 
lined up in front of Stockbridge Hall, 
and marched over to the Memorial 
Boon at Memorial Hall to participate 
in their 20th annual Armistice Day 
ceiemonies. A wreath and a special 
card were placed beneath the tablet 
containing the names of all college a- 
lunuii who made the supreme sacrifice 
in WorM War I. The card reads as fol- 
lows: "In memory of our honored dead, 
this wreath is placed beside their 
names to keep alive forever their no- 
ble sacrifice of youth and life. By the 
Student Body of The Stockbridge 
School of Agriculture." The wreath 
was carried by student veterans of 
World War II. 

Recent alumni visiting the campus 
were: P. H. Patson '41, Shrewsbury, 
farm superintendent; Priscilla Mayo 
'43, Billerica, retail florist; Horace H. 
Clark '32, Danvers, head farmer, Dan- 
vers State Hospital ; and Robert Wake- 
lee '33, Wolcott, Connecticut, recently 
returned from ten months army ser- 
vice in Italy. Bob expects to be dis- 
charged from the hospital at Fort 
Devens in the near future and will 
return to the florist business in Wol- 
cott. He was a medical aid with the 
front line infantry.

Company at Detroit, Michigan. 

State was more than fortunate!; 
blessed this past week for she was 
able to live through the elections and 
still welcome many of her past pa 
trons back. Include in the roster of 
those who were seen around are the 
following: Lieutenant Charlie G. 
Lieutenant Harvey Jackson, Lieutc i 
ant Bob Ryan, Lieutenant Jim Gra 
ham, Lieutenant John Fanmhar- 
Lieutenant John Crosby and Serges 
Hob Bertram. Remember gentlemen, 
its a pleasure to have you back! 

A letter from Avrom Romm '47 
worthy of being quoted here, that is. 
in part anyway, for it gives us an 
excellent picture of the training of the 

'A lot has happened since leav, 
State last May, and then entering the 
army and Fort MeClellan and its 17 
weeks of infantry basic. Then, deei'l 
ing that anything was better than | 
career in the infantry, I signed up for 
the paratroopers. I got moved, under 
these conditions, to Fort Benning. 

The life here is a lot better than si 
MeClellan. Good food, good barracks, 
and less baloney. The first week of 
training consisted of running, calis- 
thenics, judo, rope climbing, log drill, 
and about anything else one could 
think of under the conditions. 

The second week found us in the "1!" 
stage, which consisted of experiencing 
some of the sensations of the para- 
chute jump. This phase includes being 
carried to the top of a 34 foot tower, 
and then being tossed out. Of course, 
one is fastened to a cable, but . . . 
Today starts the "C" stage, and here 
the tower is increased to the height 
of 250 feet. Of course, the next stage 
is obvious, and consequently, in the 
"D" stage we make five jumps with 
one of them being a night jump." 

An official War Department change 
of address has come to me concerning 
the departure of Wilfred Learned '47 
who now possesses a New York Post- 
master notation. 

A letter from Jim Marshall '47 also 
indicates a change in address. Jim is 
now in the 2122nd AAF Base Unit at 
Greenwood Air Base in Mississippi. 

Lieutenant John Storozuk '43, writ- 
ing from Spence Field in Moultrie, 
Georgia, states quite emphatically that 
"It's quite a job to fly P-40's properly, 
for you may have the whole sky to 
skid and slide around in, but to do the 
job right is another story."

Pat Jennings. Fran Gillotti Have 
Unusual Careers As Mt. Tom Rangers 

by Helen NeJatne '46 
Introducing Patricia Jennings and 
Frances Gillotti — two of State's most 
colorful personalities, with as evia- 
ble a record as one could ever hope 
for. Here we have Pat who, while go- 
ing to State, still found time to be 
the leading influence in the organiza- 
tion of the South Amherst Hostel 
group. And here we have Fran, who 
while going to State, still found time 
to speak to the Arcadia Wildlife Sanc- 
tuary Advisory Board. 

Working as ranger naturalists at the 
Mt. Tom Reservation is one of their 
most recent and perhaps most perti- 
nent enterprises. Throughout this past 
simmer, from 9:30 to 5:00 every Sat- 
urday and from 0:00 to dark every 
Sunday, Pat and Fran filled the po- 
sitions that have been filled by men 

rangers and guides for the past n 
years. Under their guidance Mt. Tom 
Re 'ovation offered I summer weekend 
recreation program. They did this 
while attending the summer school 
here at State, so you see, nothing pha- 
ses this pair! 

They were certain to be kept busy, 
too — for Saturday mornings usually 
found them in the midst of groups of 
Girls Scouts instructing them in the 
ways of living out in the woods, and 
using to best advantage whatever they 
had to work with. They offered lessons 
in nature craft work, outdoor cooking, 
and handy campcraft projects. 

Putting the trails in order, hacking 
away any undergrowth, in other words, 
making certain that everything was 
as it should be consumed Sunday morn- 
ings for these girl-naturalists. 

Sunday afternoons? These were u- 
sually devoted to the public, who might 
come from Springfield, only 16 miles 
away, or a USO group, or weary de- 
fense workers seeking the peace and 
quiet of Mt. Tom. 

The girls have led both private par- 
ties and public groups over the three 
miles of nature trails. They were al- 
ways ready and able to suggest va- 
rious unusual tasty dishes that are 
cooked over camp fires. Theirs was a 
unique experience ! 

But that isn't all. They also took 
a series of kodachrome pictures for 
the reservation. On November 29, they 
showed these to the Mt. Tom advisory 

Student Faculty Board 
Plans Year's Program 

The governing board for the Btu- 
dent faculty gatherings will meet next 
Tuesday night at 7:00 p.m. in Memor- 
ial Hall with a representative from 
each of the sororities, Quadrangle, and

togethers have proved so successful, 
plans are being formulated for a dif- 
ferent organization to take charge at 
each meeting, under the supervision of 
the governing board. 

The student-faculty gatherings will 
be held the first and third Tuesday of

In one of the most exciting games 
.f the week Dick Lee and his five 
teammates were held to a compara- 
tively low score by an aggresive and 

board and commissioners at the Bol 
yoke Canoe Club and discussed the re- 
creational program of Mt. Tom in war- 
time. Kxperiences 7 Yes! But work? 

The previous summer, Pat led a 
group of ten across the continent 
through Canada to British Columbia, 
down the west coast to Los Angeles, 
back through the Grand Canyon, and 
the Rocky Mountain National Park. 
This Rolling Youth Hostel went 12,000 
miles by train and bicycles. However, 
biking is not 1'at's only means of self- 
transportation. As 1 said once before 
nothing phases her. She has traveled 
all through the South, down to Key- 
West by motorcycle. And here I can- 
not resist adding that with such to 
talk about, Pat can still sing a wry 
nice solo. 

On campus, a quick glance at her 
activities will show that she is si cap- 
able and efficient as she was at Mt. 
Tom. She is a member of the board of 
directors for the Youth Hostel in Am- 
herst, is on the membership committee 
in the Outing Club, is chairman of the 
recreation committee of the 1-H Club, 
is manager of the WAA hike group, 
and is a member of the Xaiads. 

Now for a quick glance at Fran's 
activities. Fran is a member of the 
Publicity Committee of Amherst Youth 
Hostel Council, and of the 4-H club. 
She is also co-chairman of the pro- 
gram-planning committee of the Out 
ing Club. 

Few have such an enviable record 
as these two seniors, but fewer still 
are as sincere, unassuming, and mod- 
est as these two ! 

Keep your eye on Pat and Fran. 
Their story is far from being complet-

score, but such was not the case. 

The opening play of the game saw 
Dick Lee, aided by beautiful blocking, 
romping to a 67 yard touchdown on 
an off tackle slice. But this was the 
only scoring for the first half as each 
team grappled evenly. However, in 
the second quarter G. B. O'Connor 
of Lee's team took to the air and suc- 
cessfully completed at 35 yards a pass 
to Girard for the second and last 
•ouchdown of the afternoon. And so, 
the score stood 13-0 in favor of Lee's 
team at the half. 

The second half showed Goring's 
earn in a complete reversal of form. 
With "Greg", Goring, and Jim Fal- 
vey carrying the ball on successive 
iowns they marched far up the field 
>nly to be stopped just short of a 
ouchdown. Twice in succession fate 
iogged Goring's team, for in the last 
inarter Goring reeled off two long 
ouchdown runs which were declared 
llegal because of offside penalties. 

The only scoring in this half came 
vhen a host of players tackled Gor- 
llg behind his own goal line for a 
safety and two points. The final score 
staled 15 to in favor of Lee.

spect. It was Gray's passing that pro- 
vided the margin for victory over 
Stockbridge. Gray completed 17 out 
• if 26 passes to lead his team to victory 
by the score of 37 to 6. Four of the 
team's six touchdowns were on passes 
from Bob Gray to his receivers Wein- 
stein, Falvey, and Troy. In the other 
two touchdowns Graig carried the ball 
over for one tally and Weinstein 
chalked up the other one on a short 

The lone Stockbridge score was 
made by LeFebvre who ran 80 yards 
for a touchdown on the kickoff. 

Saturday's game between Gray and 
Lee should prove to be the best tilt 
of the season. Both teams are high 
scorers, with one relying on passing 
and the other on running. In the other 
half of the doubleheader, it will be 
Goring vs. Stockbridge.

Faculty Beats Coeds 
In Annual Hockey Game 

Even though the faculty defeated 

the co-eds iii last Saturday's hockey 
game, together they both chalked up a 

victory for the Campus Community 
Chest. The faculty's 2 to 1 win of last 
(rear uas bettered by this year's 8 to 
score in this annual sports event for 
ths Community Chest. 

During the first quarter. Captain 
Jim Schoomnaker's confident eleven 
was very busy protecting its own goal 

from the inrush <>f the energetic co- 
eds, while the second quarter saw a 
definite pick-up on the part of the fac- 
ulty in its mad rush across the field. 

Flying turf, sliding players, and 
clashing sticks kept the spectators 
cheering in the first half while the 
teams battled for their very honor. 

Third quarter — a swish — and a goal 
for the faculty, made by Prof. Korson, 
who Immediately collapsed upon the 
field in amazement. 

Before the end of the fourth quarter 
the faculty had made two more goals 
and the co-eds were defeated 3 to 0. 

The faculty line-up was as follows: 
Capt. Jim Schoonmaker, Prof. Larry 
Briggs, Dr. Philip Gamble, Dr. Gilbert 
WoodBide, Prof. Henry Korson, Mr. 
John Powers, Dr. William Ross, Dr. 
Thomas Sproston, Prof. Alden Tuttle, 
Mrs. Lynnette Speer, Miss Shirley

ASTRP's Twelfth, On Dissolution, 
Looks Back At Memorable MSC Days 

by l»vt. D. L. Hsckett, ASTRP 

"When you leave the Army you will 
oidy remember the good times, for- 
getting all the unnecessary details, re- 
strictions, marching, and other such 
menial tasks that have come your 
w ay." This is the thought that prompt- 
ed Private l>. L Haekott, ■ member 

of the Twelfth I'latoon of the ASTRP 
unit on campus, to write the memoirs 
«»!' "a ffoal platoon that took its last 
coordinated breath, and with a dra- 
Kitie uasp, died,'" a story that is typ- 
ical of the entire ASTRP unit at this 
college in regard to its routine, pas- 
times, humor, and philosophy. 

The majority of us arrived at Mass. 
S ate holding in our heart grand 
visions of climbing into a P -38, waving 
a last farewell, and zooming heroical 
ly into the blue to fight whoever dared 
CrOSS our path. We were, however, 
shocked into submission very quick- 
ly and suddenly when we found 
ourselves marching in little circles un 
til our already damp clothing attained 
a somewhat distinct odor that seemed 
to offend our associates. We all inan- 

sged, however, bo endure the hard 

ships of a rookie, a yardbird which 
included the hazing of the older ca- 
dets who greeted us at every oppor- 
tunity with remarks, "Hey, Joe, look 
there goes an Air Corps man" or "get 
that platoon out of rout step" or 
"you'll be be sorry". To say the least, 
«re were all a little skeptical as to 
what we were really in. We felt better 
the day we threw our civilian clothes 
away and climbed with newly acquired 
confidence into a uniform. AMHERST, 
the large industrial city nearby, was 
immediately stormed by at least fifty 
cadets eager to show the civilians that 
they no longer had any worries con- 
cerning the war because we were read- 
y. We, the future flying tigers, the 
dive bombers, the fighters; we— you 
might have thought we constituted an 
entire Air Force were soldiers. 

This new found thrill soon was worn 
thin; mirrors weren't looked into so 
often as we broke into the reality of 
college life. Our bent forms could be

Concert Series Drive 
Dec lared Big Success 

At the conclusion of the six days 
Mush Association Drive, which ended 
last Saturday approximately 907< of 
the student body has subscribed for 
membership. 7(>4 seats have been sold. 

Thi-; has been one of the most suc- 
cessfv I drives in MSC's history, ac- 
cording to Mr. Alviani, campaign man- 
ager for the drivp, and it reflects 
splendid college spirit. The Concert 
Association committee hopes that it 
will become a well-known and well- 
established tradition. 

The Music Association is strictly a 
non-profit organization established for 
the sole purpose of bringing outstand- 
ing iron and women from the musical 
world to our campus. As a conserva- 
tive estimate, the three artists, Percy 
Grainger, Anne Brown, and Donald 
Dicks on represent $6476 worth of tal- 
ent, yet membership tickets cost only 
|8.60. The best seats have all been 
sold but a few tickets for less desirable 
seats are still available at $1.80 for a 
single performance.

about the glories "f the sky, but still 
looked longingly into the "wild blue 
yonder" when a plane flew by and said 
quietly to ourselves "maybe some- 

Some of our more elite members 
found outside diversion in the USO, 
Bennie't, the Abbey, Butterfield, pret- 
ty coeds and not so pretty coeds and 
just plain coeds, even the grass back 
of the Abbey, but for the most part 
the majority remained on the straight 
and narrow path, spending their lei- 
sure time with War and Peace, judo, 
pillow fights, general bull sessions 
and some peculiar sort of recreation 
where a few hearty members attempt- 
ed to see how long one had to squeeze 
the other's neck before he died. 

While the days slipped into weeks 
and the weeks into months, our philos- 
ophy on life suddenly took a right 
about face. We didn't worry about 
how long it would be before we were 
to roar over Japan but how long it 
would be before we could roar on the 
Springfield Limited into our mother's 
OUtetreehed arms in civilian attire. It 
was with these apprehensions that we 
sneaked up to the bulletin board to see 
how many of us had flunked. To our 
dismay and horror some of usdiscover- 
ed that you can't maintain a sixty aver- 
■ •<■ in Chemistry, and spend five days 
a week looking for Corinne. Some of 
us, a very few mind you, also discov- 
ered that you can't spend all study hall

still remember that Fe plus S equals

forget the short but glorious football 
season enjoyed by the more athletic 
on the Abbey Grass P. owl. Our 
overloaded schedule, confined to five 
games, took place in the five days that 
we were free from the so-called veter- 
i:i , i.f the army who had left us for 
:i BOJOUrn with their mothers and the 
whieky little. To the din of five hun- 
dred thoroughly excited coeds, the well 
uniformed gladiators took it upon 
em selves to see how much stuff they 
still had since they left their own 
high schools. To say the least, some of 
the plays were unique, some of the ex- 
< CUtiona of the same were moreso, but 
a good time was had by all. The result: 
a handy excuse from military drill and 
a free pass to the infirmary. 

The sudden influx of the regular 
college session didn't interupt our

Douglas Horton Speaks 
At Vespers Sunday 

Dr. Douglas Horton, minister end 
executive secretary of the General 
Council of the Congregational Chris- 
tian Churches of America, will speak 
at Vespers this Sunday, November 1!» 
at 4:4o p.m. in Memorial Hall. 

Dr. Horton has been a minister, and 
a professor at several well-known col- 
leges. He is a popular lecturer, be- 
cause of both his high position in the 
Co ng re ga tional church and his ability 
a speaker. Dr. Horton is also a 
member of the executive committee 
of the Federal Council of Churches of 
Chrisl of America. 

He received his A. B. degree from 
Princeton, and took graduate study a 
broad in Scotland, Fngland, and Cer- 
inany. Upon his return to this country, 
he was graduated from Hartford The- 
ological Seminary. 

Dr. Horton has also written several 

books dealing with religious thought. 
Among his most recent publications 
are "Taking the City" and "The Art 
of Living Today." 

Dr. William Hark, president of the 
N'orthfield Schools, spoke at last Sun- 
day's vesper services, on the text "The 
Sorrow of the World worketh Death". 
Dr. Park referred to the "sin of ac- 
cidie", that is, the sin of a gloomy 
and pessimistic attitude toward life, 
with which many people are troubled 
today. He said that this sin should 
be overcome, and that this can be done 
only through prayer.

More About Library Hours 

The value of anv oiKanization is determined to a large extent 
by the degree to which it iervea its function. The function ot a 
college library IB to provide books and other literature and a quiet 
place to study for all students whenever, within reason, of course 
these things are needed. 

Ha. OUT library been serving its purpose? Indeed it does supply 
us quite adequately with the hooks, magazines, and other printed 
material that we need and is on the whole a quiet place to study, 
but as to the time when these library services are available to 
us-that is where the hitch conies. Library hours are good as tar 
they go, but they do not go far enough. 

At the present time the library is open on Monday through Fri- 
day from 7:45 to 5:00 and every night except Saturday from 7:00 
to 9:30 p.m. These hours have just been changed in an attempt, 
it is supposed, to comply with student requests. What has actually 
happened as a result of this change is that an hour has been cut off 
at the evening meal time and thirty minutes added on by ctosing 
the building one-half hour later at night. What happened to the 
other half hour? It too should be given to us making the closing 
time for the library 10:00 p.m. It may seem as though too much 
is being made of a small issue-asking for an additional half hour 
each night; but an extra half hour can make a big difference in 
the amount of studying one can accomplish in an evening at the 
library Sufficient time should be available so that a student can 
accomplish at one time in the library at least one unit of™*. 
When one arrives at the library at 7:00 and has to leave at 9:20 it 
seems as though the evening has been broken up and considerable 
time lost. 

Although the evening hours have been improved somewhat by 
this recent change in schedule, improvement in the weekend library 
situation is still greatly needed. Many of us have courses which 
require research papers, term papers, or weekly papers ; a great 
many courses demand a considerable amount of reference work 
which can be done only in the library. We would like to rely on the 
weekends to a large extent for accomplishing this work and for 
catching up In many cases students cannot possibly do all their re- 
hired librarv work on evenings and need the weekend in which 
to do it Thus, two and one half hours on Sunday night are insuf- 
ficient A few hours on Sunday afternoon would help tremendous- 
ly—from 1:46 to 4:45 has been suggested. Moreover these hours 
on Sunday afternoon are really necessary in order that a quiet 
place to study be provided at this time since college residences 
are usually so noisy and the source- of so many distractions that 
it is extremely difficult to accomplish anything in one's own room 
on a Sunday. 

What we students ask then is merely that the time when the 
library is open be increased six hours a week. It should be open 
an additional half hour every night except Saturday, that is until 
10:00 p.m., and from 1:45 to 4:45 on Sunday afternoon. Even if 
only a few students use these additional hours they certainly 
should be available for all who want them. Some improvement has 
already been made. Why not go the rest of the way and make the 
library an institution which really serves the students' needs. 

Tenshun! Everybody fall on your 
face — everybody salaam — at least 
kneel, you dope— it's the Major, the 
Kin"; ( ,f cadets, the ideal of every yard- 
bird, the secret "pash" of every co- 
ed—Major Una Bristol!!!! 

In a recent interview, L'ni broke 
down and told us (secretly) that he'd 
like to advance his rank, and be Hon- 
orary Colonel at the forthcoming Mil- 
itary Ball, but he felt that with his 
military build he might not be able 
to put it over, especially in pink satin. 
Major Briago states that plans are 
progressing at an acceleration greater 
than gravity for your ball. Quote "No 
band, no hall, no refreshments, no 
date (opportunity no. 1,) but — we do 
have chaperons", unquote. We have 
been assured from other sources, (the 
sixth column on campus), that it will 
take place. 

Our interview was rather jerky in 
more ways than one, but we finally 
broke down the great profile and he 
made another statement. Major Um 
confesses that he is living from day 
to day here. He fears that his orders 
will come through for Vermont at any 
time. We hope that this won't happen; 
t<. lose Major Briago at this crucial 
point in the war would indeed be de- 
trimental to the new sixth front offen- 
sive on our campus. He also states 
that the coed defenses are analogous 
to the Siegfried line. It will be a tough 
winter but the spring will bring better 
things. Um (Ummy to those who know 
him well) wants all to know that his 
non-combatant status is due to ad- 
vanced age, and not to the fact that 
he was ousted by the General Staff. 
Humor him!

The question this week Is "What j 
is your opinion of the unannounced 
qoll system of testing?" 
Roger Richard* "10— They're awfully 
surprising! They are good to keep a 
student on his toes. It makes it easier 
ti, review for exams. 
Mary Sellew '48 — I don't like it for 
myself, but I guess it's a good idea. 
It is a good method of making the 
students keep up on assignments. In 
fact, it will make them study, inayhe. 
Ferdnand Martlet t M6— They shouldn't 
give them in war time. Too much 
time is wasted with inefficiency and 
waiting around now so we don't have 
enough time to study. 
Marge Hall '47 — From the point of 
view of learning, it is a good idea. 
However, there is so much studying 
and so many announced quizes that we 
have to study for, that it is almost im- 
possible to get a good mark in a 
course that has unannounced quizes. 
Isabelle Sayles '45 — Even if the stu- 
dent knows the material, the surprise 
is disconcerting and he is not able to 
organize his thoughts. 
Lucie Zwisler '46 — They are a good 
idea, because the knowledge that they 
may come at any time keeps the stu- 
dent up to date on the work. 
Anne Heffron '48 — Terrible! No chance 
for preparation. 

Betty Osborne MS— Good. The quiz 
shows whether or not the student pre- 
pares the lesson from day to day or 
crams for tests. 

Edna Duna M8 — If there's something 
the student does not understand in the 
assignment, the quiz catches him be- i 
fore he can clear up the difficulty. 
Pearl Wolozin M5 — It's a good method 
— keeps you prepared at all times. 
Jim Bullock '46 — An unannounced quiz 
lets the prof know just about how 
much the class really knows.

Those of you women who are Fresh 
o i campus will find that there are new 
vistas opening to you. Those of the up- 
peiclasses realize their great and 
grave responsibility of guidance and 
have already begun taking over. To be 
brutal, girls, Rushing is upon us. For 
the good of the campus as a whole, we 
would like to make a few pertinent 
remarks. • 

First we will offer a few words to 
them what's in. With the spaghetti 
battle all over but for the wiping up, 
you'd better find out if those Fresh- 
men need Rushin' Tea. The Psych de- 
partment seems to fed osone is the on- 
ly tiling that will revive that under- 
par M8 and remember your average 
to keep it wholly 1A. Since beauty 
and brains sometimes go together, be- 
fore you take action be sure your own 
Shearling is securely tied. After all, 
they might enjoy company their own 
age. Throughout this period of trial 

then, use tlii.-. password, "Be good to 
the last crumb." 

Now for the Freshmen. Sweets, 
don't be ove rco m e by a toothpaste 
smile, to find that your clinging ".sis- 
ter" is only a lock-jawed Hellene. Af- 
ter all, someone has to dredge the house 
and find dates because there are some 
benefits. Your sisters will help you de- 
velop personality! especially if you be- 
long to five or six clubs already. Then, 
too, you're eligible to wear an eye- 
catching pin. Tip from CO. — who gets 
on the inside anywhere — you'll want 
to be in on the ground floor of those 
two brick houses going up next spring 
on the new Sorority Row. Of course, 
those of you who are being rushed by 
the squares on campus have a real 
problem, but don't worry. As the Sea- 
son always says, "One join-t is as as 
pood as another", and I've seen S 
thrown out of many a better one. 

For the State men whom we have 
conscientously ignored — aren't you 
lucky? — we have only one suggestion: 
Keep out of clawing distance.

those noted are the following: George

Corporal Wally Stevens M6 was on 
campus last week. Wally is a radii

It won't be long, states Wally, before

one that I picked up concerning Bob 
Epstein M5 and Bob Gordon M6. These 
two men met on an unnamed lake in 
New Guinea while on individual duty 
from two different companies, and 
were they ever surprised. 

A short letter from Bill Phippen. 
just prior to his getting here for the 
week-end, is most informative, and 
therefore, I think that it is worthy of 
being mentioned here in full detail. 
"I'll mention first my brother Bob, 
class of '46 who's out at North Wes- 
tern's Midshipman's School. He should 
graduate in January if all goes well.

in the class of '45 ). Bud Ruggles and 
Dick Jackson— both '45 and Theta

Red Cross Is Deserving Recipient 
Of Campus Community Chest Fund 

by Helen NeJame 
A college reunion — a get together 
for a coke or a bull session that brings 
the Alma Mater closer — a meeting 
that makes the war seem, for a mo- 
ment, very far away — in Britain — 
now ! Sounds strange and misplaced, 
doesn't it? 

But thanks to the Red Cross, this 
has been made possible for many, as 
the American Red Cross clubs over- 
seas are frequently the scene of col- 
legiate reunions. 

It was not by accident, for instance, 
that Sigma Chi brothers now with our 
armed forces in Britain chose an A- 
merican Red Cross club for a recent 
reunion dinner. Yes, those who have 
left their campus to serve their coun- 
try, and are in the midst of the fight, 
are certainly grateful to the Red Cross 
for these morale-building moments of 
home that they afforded them. 

But wait — this is only a minute and 
coincidental activity of this organiza- 
tion. Their program of service to our 
armed forces is world-wide and in- 
volves figures that would stagger even 
a statistician. 

In Britain, their clubs serve half 
a million meals a month, and a compar- 
able number are served monthly at air- 
fields, anti-aircraft installations and 
bivouac areas. 

The Red Cross, recognised particu- 
larly for its work during the last war, 
did not cease its work with the Armis- 
tice in 1918. We know that. Its work 
continued, so the Red Cross continued. 
Now it finds itself in this World War, 
and despite its tremendous expansion, 
it has many more problems than it can 
adequately care for. Now, more than 
ever, the Red Cross needs all we give 
to carry on its endless task of serving 
our armed forces. 

And our professors, alumni, and 
students constitute part of these 
armed forces. Our fellow students 
ther from State or from other col- 
leges, at.- both serving and being 
served by the Red Cross. 

Some of these Rod Cross workers 
have left their academic interests be- 
hind. Others are following the profes- 
sional line for which their college 

work prepared them. In the latter 
roup are social workers, plsygTO 

and athletic directors, while former 
teachers, research assistants and oth- 
ers are serving coffee and doughnuts 
from the hatch of a clubmobile, writ- 
ing letters for the wounded, or doing 
other jobs new to them. 

College students are serving the A- 

meiican Rod Cross on the home front, 
too. In many colleges throughout the 
country the students ran their own 
campus Red Cross units. And every- 
where they are participating in essen- 
tial Red Cross activities on and off 
campus. The Rod Cross Mag flies regu- 
larly outside campus buildings to an- 
nounce that coeds are busy knitting 
and sewing and making bandages for 
the Red Cross. Club and fraternity 
groups sign up in a body for visits 
to Red Cross blood donor centers.And 
everywhere college girls are serving 
as Red Cross volunteers in hospitals 
and canteens. 

How about you — and you? Are you 
serving in some way? Weigh the sac- 
rifice of our fellow collegemen against 
ours. In keeping with their sacrifice 
we should insure the continuance of 
this organization, which means the 
contributions upon which it is depen- 

The money to be donated to the Red 
Cross will be taken from the collection 
in the campus community chest drive. 

We do not deprive ourselves of our 
college gatherings, so let's not deprive 
those who are across of their college 
reunions. What we offer may bring 
to some of those boys the last bit of 
happiness they are to know. 

Can we who have given so little, 
deprive them of this?

The actual climax and downfall of

by the Women's Athletic Association, 
was played Sunday afternoon. Novem-

a score of 4^. was the winner. 

The game is similar to golf, except 
that an arrow is used instead of 8 
ball. In place of holes, the arrow is 
shot through a wire hoop, the score 
being determined by the number of 

sho's a contestant uses in placing his 
arrow through the hoop. Obstseles, 
such as tho^ used on a golf course, 
were employed at this particular game 

in which 11 "hides" were played. The 

ion finishing the course with the 
least number of shots wins.

Dangers Of Frosh Gym 
Bravely Encountered 

By John Mastalertz 
Fall in! Attention! No talking in 
ranks! The commands that we now 
hear at the beginning of gym class. For 
a moment we thought that we were at 
ROTC class, but it was no mistake as 
we soon discovered. 

Our able instructors, Mr. Streeter 
and Mr. Kunces, see to it that we en- 
joy our gym period. They allow us to 
toss a football around for five minutes 
before class starts. But after class 
starts, we are under strict discipline 
for the remainder of the period. The 
exercise we receive is designed to make 
us strong and wide awake so that we 
may meet campus life effectively. The 
only complaint is that we can't sleep 
nights. We are still awake after Phys. 
Ed. After running for a mile or so, we 
are asked to do pushups, situps, and 
whatever other exercises are conceived 
by the minds of our instructors. The 
one good thing about Phys. Ed is that 
it comes only three times a week, three 
too often.

few ounces of energy, we start off over 
the course. Coming to the little house 
in the center of the course always 
presents a problem. It takes the help 
of all the fellows to get up on the roof, 
but we make it. Later they tell us that 
this house is not part of the course. 
Next comes the eight foot wall, M

the run, otherwise one will never make-

Club Votes To Keep 
French Affiliations 

The French Club, at its meeting 
November 8, decided that it would con- 
tinue its present affiliation with 
France Forever as long as the policies 
of the organization were agreeable to 
the members of the club. 

The speakers of the panel discussion 
which considered this question admit- 
ted the benefits from membership in 
France Forever. Ruth Felstiner '4<i, 
declared, "The World grows smaller 
each day and it is becoming necessary 
to know the people making up this 
world. France Forever offers a means I 
of becoming acquainted with a few of 
the people and is a step towards know- 1 
ing the others." 

"France Forever gives us an oppor- 
tunity of learning about the students 
of France, their system of education in 
comparison to ours," was the belief of 
Veda Strazdas '47. 

Sara London '46 brought out the fact 
that belonging to France Forever had 
caused no additional work and had re- 
sulted in the club's increased activity. 
"As French students we have a spec- 
cial interest in the future of France.] 
By supporting France Forever we are; 
taking steps towards seeing her realize ; 
the future she so greatly deserves." j 
This was the firm assertion of Gloria 
Brieeonnette '47. 

A cablegram from George Bidault.l 
Honorary President of the French Na- 
tional Council of Resistance and Minis- 
ter of Foreign Affairs, to the members 
of France Forever was read, thanking 
them for their assistance and the work 
thev had done for France.

Gutowska Investigates 
Calcification Of Bone 

Dr. Marie Gutowska, research pro- 
'eeeor in nutrition, is at present con- 
ducting experiments on the calcifica- 
tion of bones, and eggshells of hens. 
She began these experiments with co- 
workers in Warsaw, Poland. 

By these experiments, Dr. Gutowska 
is hoping to prove that calcification 
is a process largely dependent on the 
activity of certain enzybes like phos- 
phates and carbonic anhydrose. If the 
activity of these enzymes is inhibited 
i> is possible to influence the quality 
of the eggshell. Normal eggs, some with 
chalky shells, and others without a 
shell, covered only with a membrane, 
h-ive been produced by the hens upon 
which Dr. Gutowska has experimented. 
She explained that these experi- 
..1'iits mean that calcium needed for 
calcification must meet not only the 
actual requirement <>f this mineral in 
car diet, but also the state of health 
«f the individual must be at a good 
level so that other factors will not al- 
■ ••■ the results. Thia enables the animal 
•-d human body to produce enough 
enzymes indispensable for a correct 
■• similation of tin- calcium present in 
the diet. 

Dr. Gutowska is also experimenting 
with rats in another study of calci- 
[ication "f bones.

this latter stage was accounted for by 
Goring who countered twice, Greg- 
orowicz once, and Rose once on a 5-55 
yard pass play. 

The second half found a revamped 
Stockbridge team taking the field. Aid- 
ed by the services of Gray and Robi- 
taille, the next half should have proved 
to be on a more even basis. But such 
was not the case. Instead, the State- 
men put the game on ice by scoring 
two "quickies" to end the game just as 
time in the third quarter was ending. 

The game between Gray and Lee 
was postponed because of injuries suf- 
fered on both teams. However, these

Waste Paper Needed 

Even in peace time it seems very wasteful to burn up good paper 
bag! and boxes, but in time of war with all the shortages it involves, 
it is even mow shameful to destroy something which is so vitally 
needed and so important to our cause. We are wasting and destroy- 
ing too much paper which we ought to save for re-use. 

Thousands of different items have to be wrapped in paper or put 
into cardboard containers for shipment, and thousands more re- 
quire paper in some phase of their manufacture. As a result, the 
need for paper and paper products is much greater than ever be- 
fore. Yet along with increased demands for paper goods has come 
decreased supply which is due to the manpower shortage and trans- 
portation difficulties. 

The situation, however, is far from hopeless. We may relieve the 
shortage to a large extent by saving all clean used paper— news- 
papers, magazines, wrapping paper, cardboard boxes of all sizes, 
envelopes, and even test papers. LWl .i"st hum up the entire con- 
tents of your waste paper basket next time it is full. Save all clean 
paper for the waste paper drive— two waste baskets in a room 
might eliminate sorting. 

Let's make sure the second campus waste paper collection coming 
next Monday will be a success. The paper we save may help in 
some small but real way to bring our boys home sooner ! 

Lit Crit 

Scene: Woods' Inferno, Had Dell 
Characters: Hasil-bub, ("Bub" for 

short), Pilgrim, many busy Imps. 

a few Statesmen 

Time: any old nightmare 

As the lids fall and the curtain rises, 
we find ourselves sitting on a large 
desk, hoping that we really are as 
invisible as the Imps, runniiiK In and 
out between great stacks of the "Far- 
mers Almanac" and the "Poultry Rais- 
ers Annual", make us feel. In the 
center of this Dell is a cleared area 
and there, to our great surprise, we 
see Pilgrim grubbing madly about on 
hands and knees. Without lifting his 
nose from his search, he moans, "They 
have stolen my Glasses. How can they 
expect me to get anything done when 
I haven't the proper facilities? Oh, 
my poor Glasses! Oh, my poor Eyes!" 

Poor Pilgrim is so engrossed in his 
search that he doesn't notice the ar- 
rival of Basil -bub, carrying a huge 
clock. Attracted by the moaning, Bas- 
il-bub, spies Pilgrim and pounces on 
him in a delighted manner. "You've 
got to get out," he screams. 'Look, 
it's practically half past. Get out, get 
out. It's half-past — half past." Just 
as Bub reaches for Pilgrim's nose, in 
an attempt to hustle him out of the 
door, Milton, the faithful Seeing-Eye 
Dog comes bounding down the stairs. 
Pilgrim shakes off his Nemesis long 
enough to learn that the poor dog had 
licen unable to find even one copy of the 
Congressional Record. The dumb ani- 
mal isn't sure whether it was the com- 
plete darkness of the upper stories that 
foiled him or whether perhaps Basil- 
bub had thrown them all away. Upon 
hearing the sad tale the audience of 
Imps, which always follows in Basil- 
bub's footsteps, cackles maliciously 
and Pilgrim slumps dejectedly out the 
middle door. 

While Basil-bub's back is turned, his 
attention taken up by Pilgrim's Pro- 
gress, in another part of the Inferno 
two Statesmen stealthily approach the 
door to the Sacred Chamber of the 
Seminal' for Liberal Arts. Here they 
are challenged by a Watchful House- 
mother called Bunyan, who brusquely 
warns them to keep their distance; 
there are girls within those portals!!! 
The men's turn to use the hallowed 
■pot is not until next morning. In 
great disgust the Statesmen turn a-

Peacetime Conscription 

The Student Christian Association is sponsoring a debate next 
week on the queaton of peacetime conscription— whether or not 
the United States should adopt such a policy. The May Bill and the 
Gurney-Wadiworth Bill, both proposing peacetime conscription in 
the United Stales, were proposed in Congress last winter. 

The May bill provides that every young man upon attaining the 
age of 17 or upon completion of high school, whichever occurs 
first, shall be inducted into the army or navy for a period of one 
year of military training. For eight years thereafter he would be 
enrolled in the reserves and subject to refresher training. This bill 
would become effective when the present Selective Training and 
Service Act expires. 

The (iurney-Wadsworth bill provides that every male citizen or 
alien shall be subject to one year's military or naval training when 
he becomes IS. or within three years thereafter. He would be en- 
rolled in the reserves for four years, meanwhile being subject to 
refresher training. The Gurney-Wadsworth bill would become effec- 
tive six months after the war is ended 

Both bills are slated for a committee hearing soon, and one of 
them will be proposed in Congress soon thereafter. There are fears 
in some Washington circles that the proponants of the peacetime 
conscription program will try to force the bill through Congress 
durng the present Lame-Duck session, or at the beginning of the 

next session when some of the representatives are new* and inex- may claim it from Nelson Major in tucky.

"I've been in Washington since re-

writes Ensign Dorothy Maraspin '44.

O letter from Mrs. Gloria Maynard 
Kosciusko is most abounding with in- 
formation. Of course, she writes of 
her husband, Mitch Kosciusko '44. 
"He's in France now as a Vet techni- 
cian with the Quartermaster Corps — 
He's still just a Private, but that's 
the least of his worries, because he has 
the job he wants. He was just recently 
transferred to his new job after work- 
ing with the Medics right behind the 
lines. I don't know how much action 
he actually saw, but from some of the 
tilings he said, I guess he was pretty 
much in the thick of it. Incidentally, 
his new job is that of inspecting meat 
and perishable foods." 

"I'm still in the infantry." states 
Ed Szetela '45. "At present I'm an 
assistant si|uad leader in a rifle pla- 
toon and have a buck sergeant rating. 
We just concluded a month of manu- 
veurs in the wilds of Mississippi. This 
place has more swamps than Boston 
has Irishmen. We walked an average 
of 15 miles per day. Our food and 
water supplies were pretty limited, but 
despite the many disadvantages, we 
had quite a bit of fun ... I haven't 
met anyone from State at Camp Shel- 
by, but 1 do have a couple of Lord 
Jeffs bunking next to me".

about the library hours with just ;i 
slight variation. "What do you think 
of the new library hours?" 
Rarhara Bigelow '45 — I think they

you just get started and have to leave. 
Shirley Weising '45 — They don't help 
much. I'd like to have it open Satur- 
day afternoon and more on the week- 

Muriel Herrick '45 — The hours are al! 
right at night but I think it should 
be open Sunday afternoon to help with 
week-end studying. A dorm is noisy 
on week-ends, and many of us hav. 
research papers to do on week-ends.

it is quiet. 

Janice Holland. '46 — It should open at

it should be open Sunday afternoon. 
Hilda Scheinberg '47 — Starting at 7:00 
is an improvement. The Libe should 
close at 10:00, but it would be wonder 
ful if we could have it open week-end-. 
Elliot Schwartz '48— The libe hour? 
are terrible. It should open at S:30. 
Lots of us get through eating by 6:30, 
and then just have to wait around. I 
would like to see the libe open on Sun- 
day afternoon. 

Margo Corson '46 — Because I live 
campus and eat at Draper, I hav. 
use the Mem Building for studying 
'til 7:00. This doesn't allow me to get 
much done during that time, for the: 
are students there who use the buildiiu' 
for recreation, which is their priv:

evening should be from 8:80 to 10:00.

World Student Service Fund Offers 
Continued Education To War Victims 


by Helen SeJame 
"Never have we faced such needs. 
Our relief committees overseas could 
spend ten times as much as we can 
supply." This is the report of the 
World Student Service Fund. 

World Student Belief provides di- 
rect relief for students and profes- 
sors who are victims of war; it joins 
With students of other countries in 
raising funds for student relief; it is 
the recognized channel for aid to stu- 
dent prisoners of war, operating un- 
der the Geneva Convention of 1921); it 
is International, non-sectarian, non- 
political; it believes that students 
have a special responsibility for their 
fellow students; it builds for the fu- 
ture through relief plus education and 

How little the students of America 
know of those students who are pris- 
oners of war, who are calling for books 
to gave their minds from "barbed-wire 
disease", and their hearts from das- 
pair; of those students who are refu- 
gees who have had to flee their own 
countries and are making untold sac- 
rifices to continue their work as stu- 
dents; of those students who are in- 
terned and are immobilized for the dur- 
ation, who are studying to equio th#»" 
selves for the future; or of those stu- 
dents who are dispossessed, who have 
had to evacuate from their campuses 
and have migrated to continue their 
studies in spite of the obstacles of war. 

1 ' I Meta Glass of Sweet Briar 

College, President of the W.S.S.E., de- 
clares, "There is no doubt that Amer- 
ican students can raise $500,000 f,, r 
the relief of their fellow students who 
are victims of the war. They can raise 
more than that if they set their minds 
to it!" 

N'ews from the China front is seri- 
ous. Recent cables tell of the destruc- 
tion of universities which have al- 
ready migrated four or five times, and 
the trek of thousands of students still 
farther west. Many students were 
killed or captured in first attacks. One 
eye witness account says: "At mid- 
night the Japanese came when we were 
all asleep. In the light of their torches 
they looked fierce and terrible. Our 
guide Mr. Chen asked why they had 
come. This angered them so that they 
brutally stabbed him to death. None 
of 01 dared to say a word. Then those 
robbers began to open all our trunks 
snd took away the things which they 
liked. After their departure there was 
"inch confusion, mourning for the in- 
oceni dead, crying fiver lost property, 
red, revenge, fear all mingled to- 

The task of the World Student Ser- 
vice Fund's administering committee 

China is of course greatly increased 
M they face the emergency needs of 
thousands of students. 

From Europe comes news of the 

I'-ginning of the post-war program as 

' first student services are initiated 

liberated countries. A cable received 

the W.S.S.F. office tells of two staff 

inbers already in France, opening

Massachusetts State's football sea 
son has at last come to an undeniable 

end. Although the stair, beaded l.v 

Fred St reeter and ably assisted by 
Joe Kunces and Kube Allen, met with 
Increasing difficulties, the informal

was a spirit that will unquestionably 

arise again next year, and the year 

after, until the "University of Ifasss 

chusetts" can boast of a team equal to 
any "eleven" in ti K ht and <|iiality. 

While looking back at the past foot- 
hall season, one can discover many 
interesting factors. The first two weeks 
of the season aroused a keen feeling of 
"""petition on behalf of the football 
aspirants. The Saturdays of October 
^H and November I were filled with 
Closely contended action on the part 
"f all the four teams in the league. 

These two Saturdays indicated two 
vastly superior sipiads. One of these 
"six man" s.piads was captained by 
Bob Gray and the other by Dick Lee. 
Their contort in the last week of the 

season already had aroused a feeling 
Of Competition that spread throughout 
the other two teams. Thus, in retro- 
spect, we can consider the first two 
weeks as the peak of spirit and com-

College Pond's Secrets Revealed 
As Coed Dives Into Its History 

I,,) Lois Liu nister 
The presence of the College Pond 
1S taken for granted by twentieth-cen- 
tury students at Massachusetts State 
College Many times they scurry by, 
i„ the rush to an eight o'clock class, 
not realising it is there; yet on bitter 
cold days they wish it were not there, 
for icy blasts of wind seem even colder 
as they sweep across its frozen sur- 
face, and make "cross-campus" treks 
unpleasant tasks. On soft spring eve- 
Blngi, however, students are aware 
of the beauty it adds to the campus 
as they walk around the pond and see 
the panorama reflected in the water; 
yet again, on dank, wet autumn days, 
the pond proclaims its immediate vi- 
cinity by a peculiar odor of mustiness 
which spreads all over the campus.and 
which prompt! many a derogatory re- 

But to studentB at Massachusetts 
Agricultural College from 1892 to 18% 
the College Fond was something to 
stop and gaze at with marvelling ex- 
pression. Prior to the year 1892, the 
tract of land which lay between the 
now supplanted Botanic Museum and 
North College was an ordinary green 
cow pasture with a lazy little stream 
winding through it. But the urgent 
need for large quantities of ice for the 
dairy and for the cold storage room 
for fruits caused the construction of 
a dam across this stream, midway be- 
fcween the Botanic Museum and North 
College. William Wheeler, a graduate 
of M.A.C's first class in 1867, super- 
vise! the work done on the dam; and 
soom a sheet of water displaced the 
pasture and the cows. Students had 
little thought for the usefulness of the 
pond, but quickly recognized the scenic 
addition it made by furnishing a bit of 
artistic landscaping and a mirror for 
the buildings. 

The landscaping was apparently 
more important to some of the author- 
ities. too, than the ice for cold storage. 
Samuel Mavnard, IVofessor of Horti- 
culture, had devised a scheme in 1894, 
whereby the banks of the pond wow 
to be ornamented with a "Massaclui- 
s,tts Gnrdon", which would consist of 
n;itlv , trees, shrubs, and plants. The 

i.Und in the pond, whfch now nppenri 

to be another natural phenomenon 
was really eroated by man's idea and 
lah(M , u was made for the purpose of 
continuing the "garden" theme. May- 
nard w:i:il ,.i to make the college 

grounds, whose location was almu.y 
recognised aa one of the rnoatbeantiful 

itl the s tate. noted for their fimahed 

beauty, for ail artistic combination ot 

art and nature. 

Its name has always been .iiist 1 In 
College Pond, even though inch noted 
experts in landscaping as Mavnard 
Wheeler, and Wangh were connected 
with its early history. One wondera 
Why one Of their names could not be 
adopted easily as a title for the pond. 

The scenic beauty and the campus 
tradition! associated with the pond 
outlived its material value as a pro- 
vider of ice for college storehouses. 
In 1909 M.A.C's first hockey game 
was played on the pond. At this time 
the freshman-sophomore rope pull had 
already become an established tradi- 

tion. In past years freshmen women 
have become very well acquainted with 
the pond early in their college life. 
Here they suffer the climax of the in- 
dignities forced upon them by the 
sophomore class during hazing week. 
The newcomers, dressed in very bad 
teste, are made to fish with live worms 
for fish that do not exist. For many 
years the pond was also the scene of 
ice shows during Winter Carnival 
Weekend. Races and figure skating ex- 
hibitions were features of an after- 
noon's entertainment. In the spring 
the pond is still a source of amuse- 
ment for all students except members 
of the entomology class. These last 
laboriously find the pond a source of 
a large variety of insect specimens 
for their collections. Their stalking 
of unfortunate bugs provokes amuse- 
ment among other students who do 
not take entomology courses. The cus- 
tom of the impressive junior-senior 
procession to the banks of the pond 
soon followed these traditions, and has 
become one of the significant ceremo- 
nies held by the pond. Members of the 
two upperclasses started this custom 
in 1937, and it is a lovely part of the 
graduation exercises held in the late 


Even though students often take the 
Pond for granted, its beauty and its 
traditions will never permit them 
really to forget it; and they will not 
let it degenerate to the fate of passe 
ice ponds in many New England towns 

forgotten but not gone.

Community Chest 
Campaign To Start 

Springfield Pastor 
To Speak At Vespers 

Dr. James Gordon Gilkey of Old 
South Church, Springfield, will be the 
Vespers speaker for next Sunday, De- 
cember 8, at 4:45 p.m. in Memorial 
Hall. He is well-known on the State 
campus, having returned for some 
twenty or more years as guest Ves- 
pers speaker here. He is the author 
of numerous books, and is well-known 
in this section of the state. 

Dr. Douglas Horton had Thanks- 
giving as the theme for his Vespers 
sermon on November 19. He pointed 
out that only in Christ does religion 
have the conception of a God that is 
loving, good, reliable, and forgiving. 
That is in contrast with other religions 
which have a god or series of gods who 
must be bargained with. Therefore, 
at Thanksgiving time. Dr. Horton re- 
marked, it should be the natural re- 
sponse of every person to give thanks 
for a Christian God who stands by 
us constantly. 

The annual Campus Community 
Chest Drive will begin next Thursday, 
December 7 and will continue for a 
week, during which time State stu- 
dents will strive to reach the $2000 

Each house on campus will have its 
Community Chest representative who 
will collect contributions. It is hoped 
that each student will give at least 
$3.00 this year to the Community 
Chest. This contribution may be made 
on the installment plan, the second 
payment being paid on January 8 at 
the Treasurer's Office. 

The collectors will meet next Tues- 
day afternoon, December fi at the home 
of Dean Machmer to discuss campaign 

The $2000 collected here at Massa- 
chusetts State College will be given 
to the World Student Service Fund, 
the United War Fund, which includes 
twenty organizations among which are 
the USO and the United Nations Re- 
lief Organizations, the Red Cross, the 
Infantile Paralysis Fund, and Camp 

Kay Dellea and Fred West are the 
Co-chairmen of the Drive. Others on 
the committee are Dot Johnson, Joe 
Kunces, Anne Tilton, George Greaney, 
Barbara Pullan, Elliot Allen, Jean 
Spettigue, and Don Smith. Rev. W. 
Burnett Easton is the committee's fac- 
ulty advisor.

We are still trying to act nonchalant 
about the screams of the victims on the 
rack— there because they requested j 
pamphlets that were not on file— j 
when we notice, coming toward the , 
charge desk, a naive little freshman

warn her not to come too close or she

see that the Imp behind the desk had 
also read the look, and the pamphlet— 
almost as if acting of its own accord- 
is off the shelf and into the bindery 
before the young thing can say a word. 
We nod our heads sagely; we knew

now, above all, is the time to give out— 
with extra dollars, extra effort. Let's back 

up our fighting men by keeping in there

takes something "extra to win. Make it an

Third Issue Of Liaison

your reportei heralded the first two 

issues of the new State literary (nib

recall too, that your reporter seemed 
not to be able to profess enoueh en

enough that all state atudenta or alum 

ni familiarize themselves with this 
embryonic publication. After only a 

brief perusal of the i I se, tin- en- 
thusiasm haR been augmented to a 

point that defies expression. What is 
more important however, la that the

It's Not Over Yet .. „,, 

Thia week the sixth war loan drive started on this campus. The 
ve.y fact that bond drives arc still being carried on eloquently 
argues that the war is not at all near an end, and that we must 
gtill do all we can to promote as early a victory as possible. 

'I he wai n Europe promises to be longer and more costly than 
, had expected, while the war against Japan appears now to 
be gaining new momentum. The need for money to carry on these 
campaign great, and it is up to us. yes, us, the students at Massa- 
chusetts State College, to contribute ail we can to help win the 

As,de fi -in war meds. a United States government bond is one 
Of the best investments a citizen can make. This is especially true 
,,. w, at Christmas time, when war stamps and bonds make such 
excellent gifts. 

Infrequently one hears some uninformed person remark, "Why 
ihouW I buy war bonds? They'll never do me any good." How 
wrong that person is! Not only will a war bond, at maturity, re- 
tu n to the purchaser a third more than he invested, but the pur- 
chaaer ia also sure of receiving the principal plus the accrued in- 
vest With this money he receives, a war bond purchaser will be 
lWe t e , the benefit! of the post-war world and to buy those 
things which he can only dream about today. He will also, by 
he. »ing pay for the war now while it is going on, help prevent the 
accumulation of too large a national debt. 

I ,ns v- ran see that not only is the need for money to carry 

the war an urgent one. but the value of war stamps and bonds 

investments is great. In fact, what better Christmas gift could 

we give to a friend or relative than a portion of his post-war 

dreams-come-true in the form of war stamps or a war bond. A. R. 

This week we felt that a few words 
.,ii a vital tubjeet close to many of us 
would be in order. What subject would 
be closer to our hearts than Men? 
After looking the topic over very care- 
fully, we decided to consult experts 
OB campus. These illustrious members 
of our community have, for obvious 
reasons, asked that their names be 

The first member of the administra- 
tion whom we approached obviously 
spoke from experience. She seemed 
to feel that men must be kept at their 
distance. These are the words which 
she wished to donate for the benefit 
of mankind: Never kiss one of them 
till you've been out with him 17 times. 
Ed. note— by that time he's either 
hopeless or hooked. 

One of the custodians, known to all 

and sundry as Bub, is, by now, famous 

for his quick-witted retort, "Shut up!" 

To the college clipper, they look 

like one sheep after another. 

Our unique member of the military 
says, "I try to give my boys a little 
advice now and then, but lately they've 
been just so much competition." 

A Hellene, showing significant sis- 
terly sympathy, shrieked. "Lead 'em 
to me." 

While innocently minding our own 
business, we were ambushed by a rep- 
resentative of ihe gualernily on an 
old blood count. So we faced the artil- 
lery, CO. behind the Season, and were 
we - mortarized. 

In general, to those of you who 
feel our lack of constructive criticism, 
we offer to build up, personally, any 
Problems of the above-mentioned type 
who are submitted to us. The atmos- 
phere has been rather Thick lately, 
but remember, kids, it's just a fresh 
West wind blowing nobody good.

Too Much Giving? 

\lter he 1929 market crash, when the whole country was 
Btruck bj be depression, millions of families found themselves 
with lowei Incomes, and thousands were poverty stricken. At 
thi • time —-pie learned that they could do without countless num- 
b! . <>1 items which they had formerly considered as absolute 
.,, cities People who "had" shared with those who "had not." 

At the n-eseni moment three major drives are being held on 
( ... ,,„,., ,,i ,;' which create demands on students' pocket books— 
g, Conn ity Chest, the 6th War Loan, and the sale of tuber- 
cul »>is seals. Quite a few students have been seen to raise their 
,' | -,,. s t and exclaim about thir incapacity to contribute 

1 all the. auses. 

i |s to bi admitted that three drives in one month does sound 
me an over-dose but actually things are not too bad. Community 
Chesl pledges may be paid in January and war stamps are a sav- 
ing, not ai expense. But if there still exists the question where 
ia the mon v to come from, why not do as millions have done be- 
fore and are doing now— make a few sacrifices, do without, regard 
things formerly considered as necessities in their true light as 
itrx tries which can be dispensed with. Such steps having been tak- 
en. U is easy to save small sums of money which added together 
provide for admirable contributions to the Community Chest, and 
for the purchase of numerous war savings stamps and tubercu- 
lous Christmas seals. Why not show the true spirit of Christmas 
thia year— think of others before and above oneself: give with 
the spirit of willingness: make a few sacrifices and support our 
l ampus drives to the limit. 

Dear Editor, 

There seems to be some feeling a- 
mong the students that the "ACERS" 
are uncomfortable here. I have heard 
it stated many times by MSC students 
that the Army students feel looked 
down upon by us. "They think that we 
call them youngsters, that we feel they 
are trying to live up to a uniform in 
which they do not belong." 

True, those of us who remember 
classmates gone to war do not tend 
to think of these men in the same 
category. Nor do we compare them, 
favorably or unfavorably, with the 
58th C.T.D. We think of them in a 
class by themselves, but this does not

In the first place they fill a gap in 
our campus numbers created by the 
heavy loss of men students. Many a 
campus party would be a sorry affair 
if the cadets were not there to liven 
it up. Many a coed would find life un- 
bearable if the masculine touch of 
the cadets was absent. How welcome 
is the cadet band which is equal if not 
superior to anything the college ever 
turned out. But our respect for the 
cadets is founded on deeper sentiments 
than I have so far touched upon. 

I think that I speak for the campus 
in general, as well as for myself, in 
saying that we recognize the fact that 
the men now here, unpaid by the Ar- 
my, could be working in industry 
where they would be enjoying freedom 
from discipline besides receiving high 
wages. I think we as Americans feel 
proud that these are Americans who 
did not wait to have the Army come 
for them.

A few weeks ago 1 mentioned in my 
column one George Little '47. At th. 
time George had just completed hi, 
most eventful experience of having 
played with Dartmouth and again* 
Xotre Dame. However, I would agaii 
like to mention George's name for he 
was a guest at State over this last 
weekend. George, last year, was pres 
ident of the Freshman Governing 
Board, and he states, "the V-5 is 
grand, Dartmouth is grand, but oh 
to be back at State". 
"Warren (Warren Anderson '45) and 
I have parted at last. He is still at 
New River, only because he is a little 
younger. If it depended on the man 
himself, Warren would be commission- 
ed now, and be the best officer in the 
Marine Corps". This was written by 
Tom Kane, another 45er, and another 
truly great person. Tom, incidentaly, 
is at Quantico, Virginia. 

A letter from the Public Relations 
Office of the Third WAC Training 
Center at Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, 
gives me the following information. 
"On graduation from the Amherst 
High School, Private Joan A. Stanne 
'48 attended the Massachusetts State 
College for two years, and later took 
special work at George Washington 
University In Washington, D. C." 

Hank Martin '43, one time mana- 
ging editor of the Collegian, writes 
the following bit of news. "Keep up 
the good work, Barb, and the BBBM 
for the staff. The Collegian is lope 
with all of us who are far away, es- 
pecially we who are exiled in Califor- 
nia (Camp San Louis Obispo)." 

"I've been out here on the west 
const since March first" writes Dave 
Collier '4<!. "I was at San Diego for 5 
months, then to Oregon for 5 months, 
and now I'm back in California again. 
I've been through Navigation School 
and am now a qualified Marine Nav- 
igator. I should be shipping over next 
month. It's about the best deal in the 
Marine Air Corps. I don't know yet 
what kind of a plane I'll be on, but 
it will probably be a B-25." 

"Harvey Shapiro '47, HA2c, SfSJ 
stationed at the Hospital Corps School 
at SanDiego with me for eleven weeks" 
states Henry Cohen '46. On October 
12th, I was shipped to Long Beach, 
California; and on October 19th Har- 
vey was shipped to Oakland, Cali- 

"Two days ago 1 received my orders 
to proceed to an unnamed receivii- 
Station to join a unit forming for 
duty at Fleet Hospital which is des- 
tined for the South Pacific". 

And now for a few stray bits tl 
news . . . 

Did you know that Arnold Binder 
'47 is at Camp Blanding, Florida . . • 
that Pvt. H. B. Gottesman is also 
stationed there . . . that Karen D"\v 
A S is at Palm Beach, Florida . . . that 
Alex Campbell is a Midshipman at 
Notre Dame, and that this would make 
a good place for me to close.

Unique Dairy Exhibit Features Milk 
Its Story And Its Industrial Uses 



by Mary O'Reilly '47 

Here on our campus, the walls of 
Flint Laboratory house an exhibit 
that is truly remarkable and unique. 
This exhibit, which has been the hob- 
by of Professor J. H. Frandsen, Head 
of the Department of Dairy Industry, 
tells the story that milk plays in the 
life of man. Professor Frandsen, be- 
cause of his 17 years of collecting 
pertinent material, can show you any- 
thing from posters and movie type 
machines depicting the usefulness of 
milk in man's diet, to a collection of 
products made from milk. Moreover, 
he can show you the different types 
of milk machines that man has used, 
as well as the many kinds of con- 
tainers that are found in different 
parts of our country. 

Many of his exhibits have unusual 
slogans or eye-catching advertising 
heads. For example, you will notice 
particularly the "What's Below the 
Cream Line" exhibit. Under the catchy 
slogan you will see such items as 
beads, buttons, fountain pen holders, 
and Lepage's glue — all commercial 
manufactures of skim milk. Nutrition 
and diet have reached significant im- 
portance in wartime and the exhibit 
brings to Mpht such information as 
that concerning milk consumption in 
this country, and the food value of 
milk and related dairy products. The 
United States stands at the bottom 
of the grapli of cheese consumption, 
a fact that is surprising since we pride 
ourselves on our knowledge concern- 
ing nutrition. Actually, for instance, 
there is more solid matter in milk than 
in the same amount of many of our; 
common vegetables such as carrots 
or cucumbers. Moreover, milk is one 
of the best and least expensive sources 
of calcium. Meat, bread, and pota- 
to, plus a serving of fruits and veg- 
etables and one or two eggs supplies 

which trace the history of milk point- 
lag out for example, that the Amer- 
kan had his first ice cream cone as 
late as L904 at the St. Louis Cen- 
tennial Exposition; the first milk 
train arrived in New York in 1M1; 
and the first milking machine did not 
appear until 1808. 

There are many common supersti- 
tions concerning milk often accepted 
by the individual who scotls at black 
cats or broken mirrors. Some of these 
are the common beliefs that acid fruits 
or fish and milk can not be served 
at the same meal without causing I 
digestive disturbances; and that milk 
is fattening. All of these can be dis- 
proved. Quite contrary to the belief 
that milk is fattening is Professor 
Frandsen's bulletin titled "Milk is Ef- 
fective in a Reducing Diet". In truth, 
milk is beneficial to both thin and 
stout people. It can supplement a reg- 
ular diet in .irder to increase weight,' 
or can replace other fattening foods 
in a diet in order to lose weight. 

There is not room here to really 
indicate the tremendous scope of the 
exhibit, except to say that there are 
examples of nearly every type of the 
commercial and medicinal uses of milk. 
The exhibit is said to be one of the

Dearest Abigail C ommemorat es 25t h Anniversary Of The Abbey 

Honorary Colonel 
To Highlight Ball 

by Nancy Sullivan '45 

A Military Ball, under the direction 
of the Massachusetts State College 
ROTC and ASTRP, will be held Satur- 
day night, December li">, from \>-\2 
p.m. at the Drill Hall, continuing a 
long standing tradition on this cam- 
pus which was abandoned temporarily 
last year. A preview of the festive oc- 
casion shows as highlights of the eve- 
ning the Bradley Field Orchestra, 
featuring WAC vocalist, Sgt. Ginny 
Smith; selection of an Honorary Colo- 
nel; and a strictly military theme in 
decorations and refreshments. Gay 
light-hearted co-eds, smiling cadets 
and male students will all add life 
to this elaborate affair. 

Bradley Field Orchestra 

The Bradley Field Band is a two 
and one half year old band and well 
known in various parts of New Eng- 
land. It is under the leadership of 
Warrant Officer Mettia, and combines 
the talents of professional men now 
in the service. An added feature is its 
WAC vocalist, Sgt. Ginny Smith, who 
will lend her voice to the popular 
tunes of the day. 

Selection of an Honorary Colonel 
from among those present will be 
done by ballot by the men who are in 
attendance. In the past Honorary 
Colonels have been selected by a 
Faculty committee. 

The chaperones for the dance are 
to be Captain and Mrs. W. E. Ryan, 
Lt. and Mrs. James Bumpier, Lt. and 
Mrs. I. L. Jones, and Captain and Mrs. 
Leo A. Romano. Honorary guests will 
include Fresident and Mrs. Hugh P. 
Baker, Dean and Mrs. William L. 
Machmer, Mr. and Mrs. M. O. Lan- 
phear, Dr. and Mrs. Ralph A. Van 
Meter, Miss Edna L. Skinner, Mrs. 
Howard Speer, and the presidents of 
the Senate and the WSGA, Joe Kunces 
and Anne Tilton, respectively.

Sixth War Loan Drive 
Developes Competition 

The Sixth War Loan Drive on cam- 
pus is well under way, as is indicated 
by the colorful chart displayed in the 
College Store. Although the number of 
war stamps and bonds purchased by 
students amounted to only $437.20 
last Monday night, the committee 
hopes to at least double this figure 
before the end of the drive on cam- 

The Minute Man Flag flying in 
front of Mrs. Campion's college dor- 
mitory is another indication of the 
I ive's progress. The Minute Man 
Flag is awarded each Tuesday and 
Friday to the dormitory or sorority 
house where W)'* of the rcsid< 

ave bought at least $1 worth of war 
stamps. The house which next a- 
chieves this goal is privileged to fly 
the flag for the next few days. 

The chart displayed in the College 

'>re shows the number of houses 

hich have achieved this 90 r ; goal. 
It also shows the amount of war 

amps and bonds purchased at each 

use, campus sales center, and so- 

al event. Looking at this chart, the 
bserver is able to see at a glance 
<m the sales in his house compare 

ith those of other houses on campus. 
He may also see how near his house 

to the Wr mark where it will be 
v >le to fly the Minute Man Flag. 

The total sales to date are as fol- 

we: French Hall, $302.50; stock- 
Ige Hall, $377.00; College Store.

A Serviceman's Viewpoint 

An alumnus recently returned to the campus for a brier visit 
during a pre-Christmas furlough. One of the first righto he ol»- 
gerved was the war bond chart in the College Store. The total 
student sales read around 1485.00. Slowly the GI turned trom 
the chart and walked away. 

When asked Of his views of ye olde campus. GI Joe staled that 
the campus was still the same, but the campus spirit could be bet- 
ter Why, the amount for war bonds should be Increased many 
times The fault seems to be that there are too many money drives 
ftt ^ time . whether this conflict exists or not should not inter- 
fere with every student's purchase of the lifeline of this multi- 
front conflict, war bonds. 

The serviceman mentioned General Eisenhower's request as 
well as pleas by military officials for support in every manner 
to quicken the day of victory. But the most forceful request or 
aid is the increasing list of casualties, including too often the 
names of college buddies and acquaintances who gave their lives 
for the cause of freedom and the right for an everlasting peace. 
"If these boys are willing to pay the supreme sacrifice, then why 
can't we do a lot better in buying bonds?" reflected GI Joe. Sever- 
al B TVicemen have taken out additional bonds from meager pay- 
checks of 160, $54, and $66. Then why can't the student body 
gel "on the balT and support the most important cause of the 

present day?

Betvadora's last words of advice 

from father were •Advice my deaf, 

be conscientious**. And so Belvadora 

came to college. At first convo, pearls 
of wisdom permeated Belvadora's be- 
fogged mind. "Every day pat in at 
hast two hours of study OR each sub- 
ject." Kager Belvadora smashed her 
aptitude tests, and began her first 
year of college. She finally figured 
that she could just about get away 
with five hours of study each night. 
Helvadora, being an attractive 
wench, was rushed, and still eager, 
she immediately absorbed more ad- 
vice. She was told that one must not 
be anti-social, but one must attend 
hash-sessions, social affairs, and give 
up one night a week to the U.S.O. 
Because Belvadora was a Pre-Mcd.. 
she felt it her duty to join the SEo 
Club. Also not wanting to neglect her 
creative side, OR the advice of well- 
meaning elders, she became a member 
of Roister-Doisters. And then father 
dear father came forth again -"My 
dear, every good American should 
•.ork hisway through college." So Bel- 
vadore became an active of Caf. Staff.

At first Belvadora was only :< day 
behind, then she was 3 weeks behind, 
and when she was 8 months behind, 
she discovered that her retiring and

Christmas 1944 

This issue of the Massachusetts Collegian being the last one 
before the Christmas holidays, the entire staff of the paper wants 
to take this opportunity, early though it yet may be. to wish to 
each and everyone of its readers a most enjoyable Christmas and 
a Happy New Year. 

Ironical as this greeting may sound to many people this year— who will spend the day hard at work in their war jobs, 
those who have loved ones far away from home, and those who 
have recently lost some one close to them through illness, accident. 
or W ar— we "must try more than ever this year to exclude bitter- 
ness from our hearts. We would like to have things otherwise, for 
Christmas, after all. is the one day more than any other on which 
the family circle should be complete. Most human beings naturally 
enjoy sharing their pleasure with those they love, and what hap- 
piness is more eagerlv shared than the genuine joy of the Christ- 
mas season But we must face reality; life must go on. We must j operated to leave enough money for

Let's not only wish everyone a merry Christmas and a happy New is dampened occasionally by rain. 
Year but also do our best to make this wish come true. Bo ends our tour of campus. 

This Is t<> warn you that the Era 
of Dreams-Come-True is at hand — the 
War is over and the campus is run by 
men- as usual. The general character 
of the college grounds has changed, 
however. No longer are ere enthralled 

, ( \ long vistas of Space. The atmos- 
phere is stilled and formal; like grave- 
stones of memories rise innumerable 
mo num e n ts te the past. 

Statesmen are now exempt from 
national military service because our 
strenuous phys. ed. program demands 
that each man spend a minimum of 
24 hours a week hurdling our various 
stoneworks. Champions have come 
from far and wide to challenge our 
men in the now famous Memorial Ob- 
stacle Course. 

Hazing stunts are fashioned around 
many of these trophies. It took six 
freshmen all week to scrub the obe- 
lisk in front of Stockhridge. (This 
was erected after World War II in 
memory of those dogs of the K-!> 
Corps who made the Supreme Sacri- 

Perhaps the most outstanding con- 
tribution to the artistic beauty of the 
campus Is the tremendous Gothic bridge 
ereeed over the length of the College 
Pond; this was the gift of a gradu- 
ating class as a memorial to the men 
who went over. Rusty, the huge iron 
beaver standing on the bank of the 
college Pond was raised to the mem- 
ory of the Lewis and Thatcher tran- 
sits. The classes of the late '40's co 

More Privileges 
For The Brains 

To The Editor: 

For years, Massachusetts State Coi- 
has stressed scholarship as the 
primary objective in securing a col- 
lege education. According to the ad- 
ministration and faculty, everything 
else was secondary. 

Now, we are faced with the problem 
of students willing to learn and the 
administration opposed to their will- 
ingness. This opposition may be de- 
nied vehemently, but it is certainly 
present when the students are unable 
to use the Library, especially on week- 

There are many assignments which 

call for detailed reference work, some 

>{ which cannot be done within the 

limited hours of 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and 

7 p.m. to 9:80 p.m. Yet, the students 

thwarted in their efforts to learn.

institutions! In their endeavor to help

'48 Glee Club Stars 
In Convocation Today 

"Fresh Music" was presented today 
by Doric Alviani, the Freshman Glee 
Club, the Sinfonietta, and the States- 
men, at the first student convocation 
of the year. The program was given 
this unusual title because freshmen 
played the predominant part in it. 

The convocation was opened with 
the national anthem. At its second per- 
formance of the year, the Sinfonietta 
p'ayed Tschaikowsky's "Russian 
Choral Overture". The Sinfonietta 
successfully made its first perform- 
ance at the Collegian Pop's Concert. 
Margaret Peck '48, a new soloist, 
sang "Sometimes I Feel Like a Moth- 
erless Child". 

Then came the four Statesmen with 
the rythmical Negro spiritual, "Tell 
It", and an amusing barber shop ar- 
rangement of "Mandy Lee". This was 
the first time the Statesmen had en- 
act d a harber shop scene. 

The Freshman Glee Club presented 
• N'OW Thank We All Our God", a 
cho tie; "What Wondrous Love Is 
Tl is? . an American hymn; "You 
Kav Tell them. Father", a white spir- 
itual; "Whist Me Lanty", a Celtic 
ln'laby; and "When the Boys Come 
Marching Home", from the Broadway 
musical comedy. "Bloomer Girl". 

The Glee Club and the Statesmen 
then joined in tinging the Negro spir- 
itual, "Hard Trials". 

To conclude the program, the audi- 
ence, the Freshman Glee Club, and the 
St^te«me>i, all accompanied by the 
Sinfonietta sang Christmas carols. 

Student Questions 
School Loyalties 

Dear Editor, 

Our bull sessions this year, pro- 
voked by the slogan on our blotters 
"Back the University of Massachu- 
setts" have invariably turned us to 
that subject. We all want a university 
but before we can ever hope to have 
one, we students must cooperate in 
making MSC a good college. In con- 
vocation last Thursday the enthusi- 
asm with which we sang our alma 
mater made some of us wonder if we 
the students thought enough of MSC 
to warrant a university. 

Our departments can achieve the 
goal, but can we? In many ways all 
of us have slumped. The profs and 
the college are doing their utmost to 
give us a good education, however, we 
persist in slandering profs and even the 
college itself. We resent being called 
a mediocre college, yet our actions 
in convo and elsewhere deserve no 
better term. If we ever expected to 
graduate from the University of Mas- 
sachusetts we must get behind the 
eight-ball and prove ourselves worthy 
of such an institution. 

An Interested Student 

page of Mr. Krug, chairman of the 
W.P.B. He says, "Paper is too pre- 
cious this year to be burned, for pa- 
per is a weapon with which we all can 
wage war for the American way of 
life. Paper is valuable — more val- 
uable for many purposes than money 
because money alone cannot pur- 
chase the paper that is needed for 
many military and life-saving tasks." 
Our second campus scrap paper col- 
lection was smaller than our first. 
Though a few dormitories had saved 
sizable amounts, other dormitories of- 
fered nothing, not one sheet of scrib- 
bling paper. It had all been burned. 
How can we complain of strikes and 
people shirking their war duties when 
many of us are not willing to do 
this simple little thing — save paper? 
It can't be lack of time that stops 
us, for so many coeds can find time 
to do up their hair seven nights a 
week surely they can find the five 
minutes a day necessary to save their 
scrap paper and put it in a central 
place. Our scrap paper chairmen in 
each house cannot save the paper, 
they can merely offer us a place to 
put it for collection. A paper drive 
is not something we think of once 
a month. 

A paper drive is the effort of every 
single person in this country, 365 days 
of the year, wherever he or she is, 
to save every bit of newspaper, card 
board, and clean unprocessed scrap 
paper, no matter how small it is. Our 
scrap from college goes to Holyoke 
to be reprocessed into cardboard. It 
saves man power. Let's do our part 
better. It costs only thought, no mon- 
ey, to help bring more of our boys 
home — home soon. Sally Swift

DffeseeCC of tOO many women to he 
absorbed hy the sororities, there are 
well over 2iW students who would be 
without organized representation. 

The present organization owes its 

existence in largo part to the efforts

brought the idea before ■ mass meet-

Election of the oescers and ciaaa

Resolutions ,. 

Although it has been several days now since we said farewell 
to the old year and welcome in the new, it is not yet too late to 
adopt a Mt of resolutions for Massachusetts State College for 
1945 In manv respects 1944 was a successful year, problems were 
solved changes were made, and much was accomplished-witness 
the WSGA reorganization, the introduction of a fine arts major, 
and the concert association series. Yet much was done or left un- 
done that ought to have been otherwise. 1944 seems to present a 
challenge to us to make this year much better than the last The 
following set of resolutions should help to make this possible. 

Library hours have provoked a series of arguments familiar to 
M all-the students want and need more library time; dormitories 
and sororities are too noisy ; library assignments are long and 
numerous . . and so on. Various committees and individuals 
have been planning to do something to improve conditions but 
what is needed is more action and less planning, especially now 
that exams are so near. Let's resolve to have the library open 
when WC want and need it in 1945. 

The idea of reorganizing student government last year attract- 
ed considerable attention yet little or nothing has been done. Time 
is still ripe for a change which would dispense with red tape and 
useless committees, centralize administration of the numerous 
committees and governing organizations, provide equal responsi- 
bility for men and women on campus in normal college years, and 
make and enforce student rules and plans. Let us see that definite 
plans for it are made in 1945 and if possible put into effect. 

School spirit, another topic which created a furor last year 
need* more boosting again in '45. Those who went to Social Union 
last Friday night appreciate the fact. Why don't we support our 
own entertainments instead of the Amherst Theater or Johnny 
Green's Vespers have been so poorly attended this semester that 
they are almost in the -dead language" class. Convocations, stu- 
dent faculty teas, and fine arts programs also are not attracting 
the response they deserve. More school spirit is needed. Just a 
small sacrifice of interest in ME and outside affairs and a little 
more concern for activities on our own campus— an easy resolution 

— is what we must have. 

Community Chest and War Bond drives are another WP«tOl 
campus life which require the turning over of a new leaf the 
Community Chest collected with tremendous effort less than three 
fourths of its goal this year, and the war bond drive was not much 
better Poor scheduling, it must be admitted is partly to blame, 
but much greater student support could and should have been 
given. Let's resolve to go over the top in both drives in 1915. 
Another drive, the blood bank doner campaign, which will be 
Id on campus early next month also must have our whole-heart- ( 
ed Bupporl With war casualty lists increasing daily hew can we 
hesitate about giving a pint of blood when thousands are giving 

t heir lives ' 

For a final resolution for 1945 let'- bark the University of Mas- 
sachusetts While "State College" will not be changed to "Univer- 
sitv" until after the war. it is not too early now to show 
our readiness for our future name. The administration is planning 
new buildings, new courses, new committees— we student must 
do something too. We must be worthy of the name we are as- 
pirin" to Our scholarship must improve— 77.18 is not a high 
enough average grade for a university: our honor under all cir- 
cumstances should be unquestionable; our conduct at concerts,

by Yours Truly 

iiiiiii niiih 

Dear Osc, 

New Year's Eve without you was 
like a well without water— just a big 
hole! Why did you have to go into 
the Navy when I am in such a con- 
dition? Gee, I'm so worried. Now 
leap year is all over, and I had been 
saving the ring and everything until 
New Year's Eve. 

Anyhow, as to my condition, I'm 
a nervous wreck! Finals are just a- 
round the corner and without you to 
keep my morale high it's low. I'm not 
particularly worried about finals as I 
heard they are very easy; at least, 
that's what the profs tell us. 

Winter Carnival is coming up pret- 
ty soon, and I'm sure if you ex- 
plain to the Admiral at Sampson how 
very important it is he will let you 
come. As a matter of fact, you might 
bring him along as it wouid be nice 
for you to have company coming up, 
and there are alot of girls up here 
who need dates. 

I have reserved a room for you at 
the Lord Jeff ($7.50 a night), and 
have ordered two white orchids for 
myself, and have reserved a table at 
Wiggin's for us. Because you are 
making so much money now I knew 
you wouldn't mind. 

We have lots of new men on cam- 
pus. They're alumni of Yale, Har- 
vard, New Hampshire, and Vermont 
and points west. Of course they have 
to prove themselves Statesmen. I am 
planning to do a research paper on 
"Problems of the A.S.T.R.P. Cadets". 
Now that Mr. Anthony is on vacation 
I thought it would be a great service 
to the college and cadets. 

Please don't break anything like a 
leg or rules and don't go broke 
'cause I want to go to Winter Carni- 

1 feel so patriotic wrting to you 
now that you are in the service! 

We're finally back in print again. 
The question this week is "What is 
your opinion of the weekly Vespers 
on campus?" 

Lois BanniHter '46 — I think there 
should be better support from the stu- 
dent body. We expect good things to 
come here but then we don't support 
the organizations that are trying to 
give them to us. 

Mary Milner '15 — If all the religious 
organizations on campus got together 
and each agreed to sponsor the ves- 
per service one week vespers might 
be better attended. Since there are 
so many religious organizations on 
campus which usually meet some- 
time Sunday ,the students don't have 
time to give to both. Therefore an 
organization could sponsor the ves- 
pers on one Sunday and call it their 
meeting for that week. 
Beatrice Alpert '45 — Vespers are a 
very good thing and shouldn't be 
stopped even though only a few stu- 
dents do go. For them it is very im- 
portant and should be maintained. 
Perhaps if more of the faculty went 
the students would go. 
Alma Kowe '45 — I think more people 
should attend. Something should be 
done to make the students realize how 
good the services are. 
Barbara Schlafman '46 — I think ves- 
pers are fine and offer certain spiri- 
tual comfort which seems hard to find 
in any other place on campus. How- 
ever, I wish they were attended better 
than they are. 
Diane Kelton '45 — As far as services

With von Runstedt really playing 
for keeps, it makes it most difficult 
for me to wish each and every States 
man a Happy New Year, but let's 
hope that DJ45 is really our year. 
A i.d now to get on with the news

off properly by visiting State, heme 
Ofl leave from Fort Riley. 

And still the men dribble out of 
here. The class of 1948 is also repre-

A very interesting letter from Bill 
Learned '47 reveals many of his ex- 
periences, and I think it is worthy of 
being quoted, in part. "Here I sit on 
the cold, damp land of England, and 
I do mean cold! Had a good trip 
over, and then a pass to London. Vis- 
ited a lot of interesting places, West- 
minster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, 
Saint Paul's, 10 Downing Street, 
Lloyds, London Bridge, Tower of 
London, Charles Dicken's Shop and 
many other places." 

"I am a gunner in an anti-tank 
squad over here (With the 7th Army 
in France). It is a good job but I'd 
much rather to be back in college," 
writes James L. Dinsmore '45. 

The Air Medal and a Presidential 
Citation were received recently by- 
Norman Smith, '46. He is now a Staff 
Sergeant, the Flight Engineer on a

Hear Editor, 

The week before we went home for 
vacation a meeting of the freshman 
class was called on Tuesday after- 
noon at 5:00 to elect the class officers. 
But what happened? There wasn't an 
election because too few numbers of 
the ciass showed up. It is impossible 
to have election unless a majority of 
the class is there. 

There just doesn't seem to be any 
class spirit. How can we elect officers 
when almost all the members are " 
too busy" to go to a class meeting. 
The only excuse they give is I didn't 
have time." Phooey. A class election 
is the most important function of the 
year for a freshman. Itis also very in- 
spiring to hear the discussion and it 
:. to kn ■■•■• 

your fellow class members. 

Let's hope that the freshman class 
me m b e rs will take the re s po n sibility 
upon themselves to go to class func- 
tions, for only in that way do they 
become a part of that class and a 
part of the college. 

Sincerely yours. 
Maydee Scheuneman '48

German Club Plans AMERICAN HEROES 

Lecture On Art 

Prof. Jen Abbott, director of the 
Art Museum at Smith College, will 
five an illustrated lecture entitled 
"The Layman Looks at Modem Art" 

next Thursday, January 18, at 7:80 

in the auditorium of Old Chapel. The 
lecture is one of the series of illustra- 
ted lectin's sponsored by the German 
Club, under the direction of Dr. Karl 

Dr. Lutge emphasizes the fact that 
this is an excellent opportunity for 
the students of fttSC to absorb some 
knowledge of art and the interpreta- 
tion of it. In the same way that an 
effort is made to interpret the poet's 
meaning in a poem, so should an ef- 
fort be made to interpret the artist's 
conception of a subject in a picture. 
In this respect, art reflects the be- 
holder more than the artist. The pro- 
gram, Dr. Liuge further points out, is 
opeti to all students of the college, 
especially those interested in getting 
in addition to their other courses a 
smattering of a cultural subject.

Jaxtax Lead League As 
Volleyball Tourney Ends 

After a very successful season, the 
volleyball league came to an end 
when the last game was played on 
Dec. IS. The games have been dis- 
continued because the basketball floor 
has been set up in the cage, and be- 
cause the players do not have any 
spare time. Sometime after examina- 
tions, a girl's interhouse league will 
be organized. 

There were three games played. 
The league was divided into five 
smaller leagues of four teams each, 
and the games were played within 
these small groups. The records of 
the teams are as follows: Lucky Eight 
won 'A, lost none, make a total of 109 
points; Wildcats won 2 lost 1, made 
104 points; Campus Yarieties won 1, 
lost 2, scored 118 points; Maroon Rai- 
ders won none, lost .'5, made 74 points. 

Jaxtax won .'$, lost none, scored 
116 points; Spikers won 2, lost 1, 
scored 107 points; Irish Aces won 

1, lost 2, made 78 points; Champs 
won none, lost 8, made 84 points; Red 
Devils won 8, lost none, scored 115 
points; Rangers won 2, lost 1, scored 
108 points; Helicopters won 1, lost 2, 
scored 87 points; Whosits won none, 
lost 3, stored 57 points. 

Played-outs won 8, lost none, made 
111 points; VoUatOTS won 2, lost 1, 
made 90 points; Pilots won 1, lost 2, 
made 89 points, We-])ood-It won none 
lost 8, made S7 poitns; Net Gang won 

2, lost 1, scored 95 points; Hot spots 
won 2, lost 1, scored 94; C.C.C.'s won 
1, lost 2, scored 112; Nameless Won- 
ders won 1, lost 2, scored 80. 

The league was sponsored by the

Collection Of Water 
Colors On Exhibition 

A collection of water colors by con- 
temporary American artists is now on 
exhibition at Memorial Hall. Repre- 
senting fourty-six outstanding artists, 
'.he collection is varied and colorful. 
This exhibition has been shown at 
various colleges throughout the coun- 

The collection has paintings rang- 
\\\K from the conservative to modern 
types. Although there are no sharp 
distinctions between the conservative 
and modern. Gordon Grants two 
paintings "The Veteran" and "Haul- 
ing Out" are excellent examples of 
the former group. 

In the exhibition are two paintings 
by Ogden M. Pleissner, who has had 
era! of his scenes of the Aleutians 
presented in a Life magazine article 
a short time ago. Mr. I'leissner's 
studies, "Reflection" and "Carolina 
Homestead" have been much admired 
for their strong suggestions of sun- 
light reflections and color. 

\ tong the vratercolors in the ex- 

hihit are "Girl's Head" by George 

Constant, "Montana Highway" by 

Walter I'.lodgett, "Oil and Sand" by 
Barse Miller, and "Tennis Player" 

by Fletehei Martin. The latter ii es- 
pecially interesting as a successful 
interpretation of rapid movement. 

Because of lack of space, in the 
Memorial Hall exhibit room, eleven 
of the watercolors in the exhibition 
arc on display at Wilder Hall. These 

tercolon will be shown until the 
middle of February.

Nature Club Lecture 
Presented By Vinal 

"The Pilgrims Natural History 
They Saw and Practiced" was the 
topic of the Nature Club meeting held 

last Tuesday evening, January !>, in 

Fernald Hall at 7:80 p.m. 

The gueel speaker was Dr. William 
G. Vinal, professor of nature educs 

tion at Massachusetts State College, 
who showed beautiful hand colored 
lantern slides picturing former stu 
dents of MSC in pilgrim costume. 

In order to survive those first 
dreadful winters, the Pilgrims had to 
be good naturalists. One group of 
pictures showed the Pilgrims making 
their cloth. They began with the col- 
lecting of the wool and (las and end- 
ed with the spinning of the doth. 

Other slides showed the work in the 
old kitchens and pi c t ur ed the old 
brick ovens. Dr. Vinal also had som<- 
plants on exhibition from which the 
early Pilgrims made candles or food. 
The very fact that the Pilgrims 

ever landed in Provincetown si all 

was really the result of nature and a 
storm which prevented them from go 
ing to Virginia. The Pilgrims had 
lived a whole month on Cape Cod he 
fore they ever sstfoot on Plymouth 

One vry interesting fact brought 

members would prohahly involve the 
alumnae of the fraternities, members 
of nearby active chapters, and repre-

^oeitry Lovers Gather 
For FavOifLe Readings 

i . newly reorganized Poetry Club 
will eet this afternoon in room B 
of the < hapel at 4:.'J0 p.m. 

Thii group is the spiritual decend- 
ent of a small group of poetry lovers 
who held their first meetings in the 
Pall of 1942 to read aloud to each oth- 
er their favorite poems, concentrating 
on the poetry of particuar au- 
thors, among them iiouseman, Shel- 
ley, and Milton. With the departure 
to war of a large part of the student 
body, the group gave up its activity 
antil the time when thoughts of a 
less stern nature should occupy the 
minds of the students. Now, however, 
with the thought that there is still 
great poetry, which should continue 
to be read, activity has resumed, un- 
der the influence of Dr. O'Donnell, 
Miss Horrigan, and Miss McNamara. 

Roister Doister Play 
Uncovers Frosh Talent 

A picture of Massachusetts State 
life in three different eras— 1928, 
1942, and 1960— was shown in a play, 
Dearest Abigail, written by Irmarie 
Scheuneman and Carol Goodchild, 
both of '45 ,and presented by the Roi- 
ster Doisters on Friday evening, De- 
cember 15. 

The scenes were enacted in a set- 
ting representing the Abbey center. 
In 1928, long-waisted dresses and 
college "vamps" were very much in 
evidence. In 1942. the Abbey Center 
bussed with activity -the "heavers 
had arrived!" 

Finally, the authors took an optimis- 
tic forward look into 1900. The prise 
scene in this last act was the appear- 
ance of little Josephim Kunces, who. 
reasonably enough, was asking ques- 

The class of l'.MS v as very much in 
evidence in every act, and proved 
that histrionic ability is not limited 
to upperclasemen. Most appreciated 
"era k" of the evening came when 
Ifaija Honkonen rushed across the 
stage to get to the library before it 
closed, because it had just opened.

run for its money." The team has 
not yet been chosen but from ten to 
sixteen boys have been coming to

MSC Fraternities Plan 
ring Activities 

The I nte: fraternity Council, now 
made up of faculty advisors, met with 
the men students of MSC last Thurs- 
day se lling, January 11, at 7:00 p.m. 
to explain the ideals and aims in join- 
ing a fraternity and the advantages 
of belonging to one. 

At this meeting many of the men on 
campus expressed a desire to join a 
fraternity now and many said that 
they would like to join one before 
they enter the service. Because of the 
St interest shown, the Council met 
later to decide what action to take. 

All men of MSC who were inerest- 
ed in joining a fraternity were invited 
to meet the various chapter repre- 
sentatives on Wednesday, January 17, 
Si 7:00 p.m. at Thatcher Hall Each 
chapter had a room on the first floor 
of Thatcher Hall, where those inter- 
ested, met the representatives. This 
meeting was the first rushing of fra- 
ternities and was held so that all men, 
who are going to enter the service 
very soon, had the chance to join a 
fraternity. There will be another per- 
iod of rushing on completion of the 
second semester.

season in 1042-43 against tough op-

eight. As the season went along, the 
Statesmen showed weakness in de- 
fense, and never came into their own 
until they defeated Tufts College 
at Medford, 02-59. From then on the 
team improved somewhat, but was 
defeated on several occasions. Upper- 
class students will remember the out-

Wartime Restrictions 
Cause Glee Club Cut 

Member. ship in the MSC Women*! 
Glee Club has been reduced from '. i 
to 2'.) as a result of tryouts held Jan- 
uary !» before an impartial Judge. 
The necessity for this cut, according 
to Mr. Doric Alviani, director of the 
club, wis threefold: scarcity of time, 

O.D.T travelling restrictions, and a 

new Glee Club policy. 

The shortage of time, Mr. Alviani 
explained, is due to class schedules 
and schedules for extra-curricular ac- 
tivities being so full that insufficient 
time is available for practice by a 

According to a statement published I)aphru . Tullinan '40; Nurse Blake, 

by the club at this time, "any girl who 
is not a member of a sorority is auto- 
matically an inactive member of 
"Quad", but she may become active 
any time she chooses to join the club. 
Quadrangle is the representative body 
for the non-sorority girls." 

Since then, with Myrtle Polley re- 
placing Carol Goodchild as president, 
the club had as one of its main pur- 
poses the improvement of student-fa- 
culty relations and accomplished a 
great deal along that line. Quadran- 
gle's members were also prominent in 
the organization of the Independents 

The Quadrangle treasury has been 
donated to the Community Chest.

"The Layman Looks At Modern

lecture to be presented tonight at

The scene is an anteroom to Char-

for the business of the ward. It prom- 
ises to be a very entertaining pres- 

The cast consist! of Sister Helen, i 
Jean Spettigue '4dj Nurse Roberts, | la»fS Glee Club. Hecause of this, Mr. 

Alviani stated, his choice was limited 
to girls who have better-than-avei -sge 
voices, musical interest, ability to read 
music quickly and well, and those who 
rank high scholastically. 

The O.D.T. ruling which places 
strictions on travelling is the second 
reason the number of members in the 
club had to b« reduced. As Doric Al- 
viani pointed out, with a smaller 
group sinking, each individual | 
son be more capable hence the need 
for careful seb-ction. 

Finally, the Glee Club is undergo- 
ing a chari^'- of policy. Instead of be 
ing solely a local entertainment group, 
there is to be an emphasis on con 
certs for the war effort -at bond 
sales, soldiers ramps and hospitals, 
community hospitals, and the like. I',,- 
cause of the travelling that this will 
necessitate, as mentioned before, a 
much smaller group must In- used. 
Mr. Alviani believes that Massachu-

tisfaction from the new policy of the 
Glee dab Not only will the c' b be

Dear old Massachusetts- 
Brave old Massachusetts! 

A Final Word 

As all good things eventually must come to an end, so ends at 
last the period of office of this editorial board of the Collegian 
In September 1943 when the present editors looked forward to this 
day it seemed so remote that it would never come, but it has 
come; this is the last issue of the Collegian under the editorship 
of the class of '45. At such an occasion thoughts, somewhat trite 
but nevertheless true, require expression. 

In looking back over the three semesters in which we have 
served we recall many a Tuesday night when the midnight oil 
has burned far into the early hours of Wednesday morning and 
we recall many a Wednesday morning quiz that was flunked M 
a result. At times things were rather difficult-several reporters 
as well as two managing editors were called into the service 
our income was cut, and even the office itself had 1 Hi ups and 
and downs as it was moved from the main floor in the Memorial 
Building, down to the janitor's room, and then back up -gam 
to its regular location. But people were cooperative and helpful 
and we rtruggied through. Dr. Goldberg helped greatly, especially 
with the first few issues, by sending over articles, suggesting 
new* items, and even serving as chaperone for a few weeks since 
it was neceasary that women who stayed out after hours have 
I faculty member with them. Kay Tully, director of the college 
news service, has also helped from time to time as chaperone 
and as copy writer, headline composer, and general J°™ ell ° r - 
Words of thanks also go to Prof. Dickinson, Dick March and 
Jean Spettigue, who through careful handling of Collegian funds 
made it possible for us to continue despite restrictions of a re- 
duced budget. Our printer, Hamilton Newell, is another person 
to whom we are indebted for his cooperative readiness to accept 
late copv, make last minute changes, and even deliver the paper 
when convocation distribution was impossible. A final thank 
you goes to the faculty and students and to all others who have 
sent us news and have given us so much support including fi- 
nancial assistance through the Pops Concert, and Senate and 
WSGA contributions. 

Our accomplishments throughout this long period of editor- 
ship are bv no means as great as we should have liked them to be 
-the degree of success our various campaigns have met has been 
varied, but at least a small amount has been accomplished. 

Turning to the future we trust that the Collegian will continue 
a8 ever— even better than ever if possible. The quality of the paper 
to some extent will depend on continued student and faculty 
cooperation If all items of news could be turned in or even men- 
tioned to the editor or any member of the staff, the coverage 
of the paper would be far greater and the paper itself would be 
better Also suggestions and criticisms of any sort are always 
welcome, in fact are desired in order that the paper may be what 
the students want it to be. 

A college newspaper can be one of its most valuable possessions. 
It is after all one of the best mediums of expression of student 
opinion. Through letters, opinion columns, editorials, and even 
news stories, students may accomplish almost any worthwhile 
thing thev desire if they try long and hard enough. 

At present perhaps the greatest value the Collegian serves 
is that of giving news of the college to MSC servicemen who,

New Glee Club Policy 
Subjected To Criticism 

Dear Editor, 

One of the most distressing situa- 
tions of late to at least forty college 
students, is the sudden whittling down 
of the Glee Club. Many of us who 
were in the Glee Club, and paid out 
money on the black skirts and white 
blouses, as victims, have lost finan- 
cially. Many of us who were accepted 
in the Glee Club and gave up other 
organizations in order to give our 
time to that club, have lost all Many 
of us who wanted to join for the 
sheer enjoyment, have now lost, per- 
haps, our one joy of college life. 
The reason for this cutting was

for the Red Cross, and rejuvenate the 
world in their next Discussion Club 
meeting, I was introduced by the 
President of this fine college with 
whom I had just arrived from Boston 
a few minutes before. And this was 

I rose timidly from my chair, and 
pushed aside the liquid air until I 
felt the solid wood beneath my hand. 
Slowly I raised my eyes-@„..! Where 
were the expectant faces, the intelli- 
gent eyes? My gosh, they're all a- 
sleep already. No-no, I'm wrong! 
They're studying-, and writing-, and 
even reading!!!! Well, control your- 
self; what's a college for?? Tell a 
joke; that will get their attention. 
Oh gee, censored— and Boston banned 
this one— ah, here's one! No-one 
looked up. What do I need, a fan? 
Look up— look at me— I your speak- 
er. O.K., don't look. I must get on 
with this, "Book reviews are very 
intricate and interesting" — What's 
that noise? I'm clacking my uppers! 
No, I'm not!!! Oh no, it can't be my 
knees; not after that $40 for a public 
speaking course. Egad, it's knitting 
needles! Why do they do their knit- 
ting for Britain here ? What about my 
little message? Oh well, "The me- 
chanics of book reviewing are also 
very intricate and interesting ..." 
Hm . . ., I can see I'm popular! 
Look at all those blanks; chairs, not 
students. It's so illuminating talking 
to chairs. Well, they're about as re- 
ceptive as the— uh— students? "Book 
reviewing requires an interesting and 
intricate mind but" Do I hear bells or 
a fog horn? Oh no, I've got to have 
water. They're moving. Someone just 
looked at me! Stop it, this is no time 
to get shy! What, what are they do- 
ing? Stamping, shuffling, maybe they 
are going to stampede!! Nope, they're 
leaving — I've got them now. Ha! They 
will never get out! Ha, ha, ha, they 
can't leave until I stop! ha, ha, ha,

ulation on transportation. Naturally, 
we are all willing to give up things 
for the war effort. However, this 
O.D.T. ruling does not seem to me 
to be a problem necessitating the 
suspension of many hard working 
members of the Glee Club. Back in 
October we were informed that there 
would be transportation trouble, and 
that only selected groups could make 
the long trips. Yet in the early stages 
nothing was done about it. Why could- 
n't the honors be divided equally with- 
in the groups — some members to go 
to Boston, others to New York? As 
it is, one group is going, and all the 
rest are left to suffer for someone 
else's mistake. 

It has been said that the present 
group was selected by an impartial 
observer for musical ability (which 
was judged by a few phrases of a 
song we had rehearsed many times), 
for note-reading ability (which was 
also judged by the same familiar 
song), and for scholarship (which is 
also debatable). I am willing to wager 
that most of those suspended are e- 
qual to most of those retained, if giv- 
en a thorough unprejudiced trial. Per- 
haps, this matter cannot be straigh- 
tened out now, but in the future, I 
hope, the powers-to-be will use a bet- 
ter mystic ball, and the students poss- 
ess equilibrium enough not to be 
caught off balance. 

Thank You, 
Little America

The Class of 1945 was well repre-

three of its chosen sons returned for

The Animal Husbandry Course of 
Stockbridge has the privilege of add- 
ing a new member to their class, Paul 
Manning of Marlboro. Paul is a vet- 
eran of the U. S. Marine Corps. 

Stockbridge School opened its sec- 
ond semester on January 3, 1945. We 
were informed by Mr. Verbeck of the 
permanent absence of Messieurs Hi*r- 
gins, Shultz, Hermann, and Knowlton. 
Their presence will be missed by the 
remaining students. 

Bill Weber took three days off last 
week to attend the National Fruit 
Exposition at Worcester which he 
found most interesting and education- 

On entering the St Regis Diner 
Saturday noon, several Stockbridge 
students were attracted by the crowd 
around the kitchen door. Upon fur- 
ther investigation they found, sur- 
rounded by 100 pounds of potat< - ; 
and potato peelings, none other than 
our own widely talented David Hop 
ray. This, plus his steady job of pan; 
and cans at the dairy barn in the 
wee hours of the morning, gives Mur-

Naiads To Enter 
Telegraphic Meet 

Members of the Naiads are practi- 
cing for a telegraphic swimming meet 
to be held early in second semester. 
The meet is open to anyone who ful- 
fills the requirements for the mini- 
mum number of practices. The re- 
quirements are eight half hour pract- 
ices before March, with at least one 
a week. 

The meet will include a medley relay, 
individual medley, and 40 yard dash 
in the crawl. The pool is open for prac- 
tices every day from 4 to i o'clock. 
Anyone interested in entering the 
meet should notify either Miss Shirley 
Winsberg or Carol Whitmore, club 
manager, as soon as possible. 

Three years ago, M.S.C. won first 
place in the telegrapic meet, and the 
following year took third place. This 
year, with the present sophomores, 
iuniors, and seniors, and some promis- 
ing freshmen and transfers, State 
-hould make a very good showing, 
according to Carolyn Whitmore.

Newly Formed Bureau 
Gives Aid To Veterans 

To provide Mason between veterans 
at the college and other organizations 
set up for assistance to veterans and 
to give information and guidance are 
the purposes of the newly formed 
MSC Veteran's Bureau. The new or- 
ganization, authorized by the Hoard 
of Trustees at President Maker's recom- 
mendation, is directed by Mr. Guy 
Glatfetter, bead of the placement ser- 
vice, assisted by Mr. Marshall O. Lan- 
phear, registrar; and Dr. Claude ('. 
Neet, Professor of psychology. 

The first function of the new bureau 
is liason between the college and 
Community Committees, American Le- 
gion, Kducational Officers of Veteran's 
Hospitals and Army Camps and oth- 
er organizations set up for assistance 
to veterans. 

It will also keep a library of in- 
formation on matters pertaining to 
the veterans, including legislative, fi- 
nancial, educational, and occupational 
information. General information a- 
bout the college will be on hand and 
the veterans will be referred to the 
special departments for specific in- 

In order to determine a veteran's 
capacity t<» do work at the college 

level and to help determine his voca- 
tional interests and aptitudes, the 
veteran's bureau will arrange for 
such tests as are indicated. To aid 
veteran's in selection of courses of 
study and in preparation of careers, 
educational and occupational guidance 
will be provided. General counsel of a 
personal or group nature will be giv- 
en. Assistance will be given alumni 
in problems pertaining to their place- 
ment and further education under the 
G. I. Hill of Rights.

The MSC basketball squad is now 
in its second full week of practice 
However, with only one week left in 
which to develop a team before the 
first game, Coach Streeter is meeting 
many of a coach's problems. The good 
old college spirit that once clamored 
for this informal basketball team is 
now simmering down to a candlelight. 
At the first few practices, attendance 
was extremely good with approxi- 
mately sixteen boys turning out. How- 
ever, now, it seems as though entlui 
siasm has waned a little, for the at- 
tendance figure has dropped to a min- 
imum of ten candidates. 

If the MSC quintet is to show a 
creditable performance in its six- 
game schedule, the boys who want 
to play basketball must coop e r a te 
with Coach Streeter by attending 
each and every practice session. The 
games ahead are no pushovers, and a 
great amount of effort must be put 
in to make the season a success. Here 
is the schedule as it stands now : 
Wed. Jan. 31 — Amherst High here 
Sat. Feb. 3— Williston Acad, there 
Tues. Feb. 13 — Deerfield Acad, here 
Mon. Feb 19— Amherst Coll. there 
Sat. Feb. 24— Williston Acad, here 
Tues. Feb. 27— Deerfield Acad, there 

Note, the first game is scheduled for 
Wednesday, January 31, the first eve- 
ning of second semester. It is expect- 
that every co-ed and male student on 
campus will mark that date down as 
a "must" on his or her date calendar. 
This is State's first attempt to ven- 
ture into the newly organized sports- 
world and we must help make this 
venture a success. 

The game will take place in the 
MSC "Cage" and ample seating fa- 
cilities will be provided. 

One often hears students talking 
about MSC and its spirit or lack of 
it. Well, here is an opportunity for 
both the school and its students to start 
off in the right direction by showing 
up in full strength for that first game 
against Amherst High on January 
31. Let's all be there and watch 
State's new fighting quintet.

Even though students here at State 
have almost forgotten what butter 
looks or tastes like, they can be sure 
that their former classmates now in 
the armed services are receiving plen- 
tiful amounts of this "rare delicacy". 
"For the first time in any war Amer- 
ican fighters are getting butter over- 
seas", states an officer of the Army 
Quartermaster Corps. Statesmen in 
Italy, France and England are eating 
package butter on their bread and 
mashed pot ato ; while those stationed 
in the warmer climates of India, 
North Africa and the Pacific Islands 
where no refrigeration is available 
receive canned butter. 

The food value of butter is so thor- 
oughly appreciated by the Army that 
fifteen percent of all the product made 
in the United States is set aside for 
American fighting forces. That a- 
mounts to nearly a quarter of a bil- 
lion pounds a year, according to the 
National Dairy Council. American 
fighters are provided over twice as 
much butter per capita as are civi-

We also fail to see why we do not 
have any voice concerning the sched- 
uling of our performances. Although, 
many are submitted, few are in favor 
of an appearance scheduled for the 
night of January 23, during finals 
week When we have been faithful 
in attending Glee Club rehearsals and 
performances, often to the sacrifice of 
our studies and other activities, we 
consider it an injustice to be forced 
into appearing at this concert. Even 
though some members were having 
two final exams on the following day, 
they were given no alternative except 
to drop out of membership in the 
Glee Club after a whole semester's 
work. As strong as our musical in- 
terests may be, still our studies must 
take priority. 

The most unjust of injustices oc- 
curred during the past week, when 
between thirty and forty of the Glee 
Club members were suspended with- 
out sufficient warning. The reason 
given was that the new O.D.T. ruling

the number of members who could 
make tripe. It does not, however, seem 
a qualified reason to simply drop this 
large group of girls. The manner in 
which the judging occurred seemed 
far from democratic to those who 
tried out. What reason could he given 
for not Splitting the club into two or 
more travel groups, or having chosen 

one, training the remainder along

studies. In this way an agreeable 

precedent might have been started 

wherein only the juniors and seniors 
or tome other gTOUp, would make 
the trips and thus give the other mem- 
bers a goal to achieve. 

How were the try-outs conducted?

girls selected, the criterion was the 
number of years in the Glee Club 
and participation in operetta roles 
and such. Is this then, a voice trial? 
We do not mean to protest against 
those retained, but against the un- 
fair way in which the others were 
dropped, after a semester's work, 
without warning, after having bought 
the Glee Club costume (at the in- 
sistence of the manager), and after 
having in good faith sacrificed time 
which might have been used for stud- 
ies or other activities.

People around here don't realize the 
advantages Nature gave them. Just 
listen to them kick about the weath- 
er: When it snows, they want sun, 
when the sun comes out, the glare is 
too bright, when it rains, it's too wet, 
when it freezes it's too icy. People 
gripe about every variety of weather 
we get. But isn't there somthing a- 
bout varity being the spice of life? 
There are several different ways 
of looking at the weather, and I am 
not referring to different tints of sun 


Entomological: New England has 
fewer varieties and less insect pests 
in total than any other part of the 
country. Some say that this proves 
that not even insects are foolish e- 
nnugh to live in such a climate, but 
they just don't know what they are 
talking about and no red-blooded New 
Engiander should even listen to them. 
They are probably California or Flor- 
ida agents and should be shot on sight 
Philosophical: this angle has al- 
tsdy been very well handled by Mark 
Twain, who is supposed to have origi- 
nate ' the statement "If you don't like 
New England weather, just wait a 
minute." Twain seems to have been 
I smart fellow (it is said that he 
n rote for a living, but we must not 
hold that against him) anr must 
have had some New England blood in 
nil veins His remark shows how the 
tamed patience of New Englanders is 
developed. Just look at Maine and 
Vermont; they have been trying since 
19321 Thos* 1 subversive elements who 
hint darkly that Twain made his re- 
mark while trying to influence a New 
Hampshire farmer into giving him

The Aggies were 'surprised" at 
their 3-1 defeat bv the Amherst hock- 
ey team. It was their first defeat of 
the season, and they didn't know quite 
what to make of it. However, they 
were bent on winning the forthcoming 
basketball game with their ancient 
rivals, Amherst, and thus paying back 
the defeat. 

A big alumni day was being plan-

an important club or organization will 
be given a certain number of points. 
Every student will be allowed a num- 
ber of points which he can use any 
way he sees fit. The big office on cam- 
pus, such as president of WSGA, pres- 
ident of Senate, editor of the Colle- 
gian, and editor of the Index, will re- 
quire more than half the maximum 
number of points. The holder of one 
of these positions would therefore 
have to confine the rest of his ac- 
tivities to less important offices, 
or merely membership. However, a 
person, instead of doing that, might 
hold two or three minor offices in-

holding all campus elections within 
the same month, so that terms of 
office would not overlap. Once the 
system goes into effect, all nominating

their candidates. 

The commitee in charge of setting 
up the point system is Walter Goeh-

Anne Merrill. Mrs. Lynette Speer is

Earthquakes, Topic 
At Joint Meeting 

The Amherst Nature Club and the 
Newman Club have announced that 
they are sponsoring a lecture of un- 
usual interest. Rev. Michael .1. Ahern 
of Weston College will speak on 

"Earthquake! In and out of New Eng- 
land* in the Old Chapel auditorium 
at 7:80, Tuesday evening, Feb. 13. 
Father Ahern, Emeritus Professor 

of Chemistry of Boston College and 

Holy Cross, and later President of 
Canisius College, is perhaps most 
widely known in this locality for his 
contribution to the radio program, 

the "Catholic Question box". 

Weston College of Weston, A' • 
chusetts, is one of the leading insti- 
tutions in seismologies) studies and 
is especially well equipped with seis- 
mological instruments. On more than 
one occasion the Seismology Depart 
nient of Weston College has supplied 
the press with accurate information 
Concerning the location and extent 

of earthquakes in Japan, before re- 

ports arrived in this country through 
regular news channels. Father A- 
hern's con n ec ti on with the research 
and recordings of earthquakes at 
Weston College make bin eminently 
fitted to discuss the topic that he has 
chosen for the joint Newman and Ns 
ture Club meeting. Although everyone 
is aware of the earthquakes which 
have occurred in this locality during 
recent years, many people do not 
realize that they are of such frequent 
occurrence that recordings have been 
made of over 250 earthquakes in the 
area of Boston. Father Ahern is a 
very interesting and fluent speaker. 
The lecture will be illustrated with 
lantern slides, moving pictures, and 
diagrams; and students are cordially 
invited to attend.

Belief In God, Prayer 
Discussed At Meeting 

"Mow Can I Relieve in God" was 
the subject of the combined Hillel-

is Fox, a well-known Jewish lawyer 
from Hartford. The meeting was held 
last Sunday evening at 7:.'10 p.m. in

meeting. Connie Scott '4<l gave the 
prayer, and Jason Kirshen '4»; read a 

poem by Bill Manchester, ex '14. 
Accompaniment for the hymns was 

played bv Doris Roberts '4a. 

Lewis Fox spoke for twenty mm 
utes on the reasons for his personal 
belief in God and then the meeting 
was opened to questions. In answer to 
a query on the importance of prayer, 
Mr. Fox declared that prayer was 
very important to lif«\ He stressed the 
importance of praying every day at 
the same time and under the same 
conditions, either alone or with so< 
one else who wishes to pray. "We 
should pray to understand God's 
ways", he said. Lewis Fox went on to 
say that just because prayers aren't 
answered is no reason to stop be 
ing In the power of prayer. He ex- 
plained that the universe is so e< 
plicated that it is Inconceivable to ex- 
pect that God can answer all prayers, 
for some must contradict others. 

When asked about immortality Lew- 
is Fox -aid that he personally found 
it impossible not to believe in it, be 
cause he could not conceive of great 
i end great people being resllj 
dead after their life is over.

freshments were served downstairs.

Dear Editor: 

Last year, the Editor of the Col- 
legian, as a result of a telephone call 
from me, discussed the problem of 
student safety and sidewalks along 
North Pleasant Street. Last night, 
the need for the reforms she advocat- 
ed was underscored by the death of 
an Amherst student in the U.S.M.A.P. 
program, and the injury of an M.S.C. 

As Editor of the Collegian, you 
could perform few services more use- 
ful to the College than to actively 
campaign for some solution to the 
safety problem of pedestrians on 
North Pleasant Street. Perhaps more 
sidewalks, police supervision, a new 
stop-light, and a student safety cam- 

ton, aim spent ins kjii«k<- y*.«n*> ••■ r "o --' -

Collegian Policy 

The Collegian is the organ of student opinion. That is its pri- 
mary function, and all other functions are secondary or contribute 
to the main purpose of providing the students of the college with 
a medium for expression of their ideas on any and all subjects. 
The Collegian is also a bulletin of campus affairs. That is second- 
ary. The Collegian is a publicity agent of the College. That is im- 
portant, but also secondary. 

Well then How many students express their opinions in the 
Collegian? First, there is the time-honored method of 'letters 
to the editor." These letters should not be confined to criticism, 
and what crticism is included should be supported by logical rea- 
soning and suggestions for improvement. Far too many students 
wish to use the Collegian columns as a vehicle of violent invective 
remaining themselves anonymous. And that brings up another 
matter All letters should be signed by the writer when sent or 
brought to the Collegian office. A pseudonym may, however, be 
used in print. Another method of expression of student opinion 
while not as direct is usually more effective. If the editorial board 
becomes interested in a particular situation, the Collegian will it- 
self take sides, and will campaign for the best interests of the 
College The board members may become interested through the 
letters mentioned above or by way of personal contact with those 
who are directly interested in any given situation. 

In these two wavs, then, the students may use the Collegian as 
a vehicle, a tool to shape the campus they want. But the Collegian 
is more than a tool of the students. It serves, in addition to find 
and publish the truth about controversial issues in which it may 
or may not take sides. If, for example there is a great 
hue and cry about Goodell Library, the Collegian will print both 
sides of the story. This particular situation wll be considered 
in the next issue. 

Blood Donations 

So much has already been said on this subject, and it is now so 
close to the date for donations, that all we can do is to express 
the hope that the Red Cross will find its stop here worth its time 
and effort. 

Waste Paper 

Sallv Swift, chairman of the Waste-paper drive, has stated her 
appreciation of the fact that the recent collections were the best 
yet. We hope that future collections will be better still. The war 
also has a future left to it.

Notes — serious and otherwise 
by Sum-Gib-Dust 

i § 

;,,.,,,., NSMSMSMM Hunt • •• *• 

The news which ordinarily compos- 
es the serious portions of this column 
is just about at a stand still this 
week. So as not to disappoint our 
readers we will have to resort to that 
which we call "otherwise". 

In Stockbridge School we have four 
poultry students, three boys and one 
girl. Up to this time their talents 
and personalities have been unknown 
to many of the other Stockbridge 
students. However, with the time of 
their departure for farm training 
drawing near, we believe that the rest 
of the student body should be en- 
lightened as to the good fortune 
which shone on Stockbridge when we 
wore gifted with these four class- 
mates . . . 

To introduce these students we 
shall start at the top and work down. 
First we have Dick Pratt, whom we 
all look up to. Then, there is Dick 
Lawson, known to many at "The 
Stockbridge gentleman". (No remarks 
Greany!) The third member of the 
class is Don Houston, better known 
as "Junior," and last, but far from 
the least, the feminine portion of the 
poultry class, Sarah Baker. 

Dick Lawson and J unior were mem- 
bers of the Stockbridge football team, 
and shared in the glory of the many 
victories which the team almost had. 
Junior is also an ardent skier and had 
been taking full advantage of this 
talent in the past few weeks. All 
three of the boys are out for the 
MSC basketball team. Pratt is ex- 
pected to be a regular member on the 
varsity five, and Lawson and Junior 
are going to cheer him on from the 
bench. All four students are expecting 
baby chicks next Sunday, so, good 
luck to you and the Boston White 

But, seriously, gang, it has been 
swell having you as classmates. Our 
only regret is not becoming acquainted 
with you sooner.

fied program. Possibly other sugges- 
tions can be offered but at least 
something should be done. 

Safety campaigns however are not 
sufficient when sidewalks are non-ex- 
istent, improperly constructed, or 
piled high with snow or slush. Even 
if our present sidewalks are used, 
many students coming to the campus 
are forced to cross several roads to 
get to the western side of the campus 
when an adequate sidewalk system 
would eliminate most of these cross-

The Art of Snow Sculpturing or How 
Not To Win The Plaque 

As Winter Carnival rolls round 
again, and we find that by some trick 
of fate we have more than an eight! 
of an inch of dirty snow, barring o! 
course the well-discussed January 
thaw due in February, our creativ, 
minds turn to the intrinsic problen 
of creating a snow-sculpture rivaling 
Myon's Discus Thrower or the Lin 
coin Memorial. 

The first step is of course to ac- 
cumulate some snow. If one cannot 
get the W.P.A., the Public Works 
Department or the Senate to help, it 
becomes a personal problem. After 
pulling a few ligaments and becoming 
a muscular cripple thereby render- 
ing yourself ineligible for the danc 
(it is recommended that this snow- 
sculpturing problem be attacked by 
dateless ones) you'll see before you 
a mound of pure, marble-like (for in- 
spiration), white snow, that you can't 
see over, get around, and that it is 
impossible to scale even with a block 
and tackle.

Maybe it's true that people have 
to be killed before anything is done 
to rectify mistakes. When an Amherst 
college student driver and others 
were in a bad accident a few months 
ago it started a lot of people think- 
ing In view of last night's accident 
and the probable lectures we will re- 
ceive about walking in the road I 
would like to say a few words on be- 
half of the students. At the instiga- 
tion of Dr. Gamble last fall I sub- 
mitted a petition to the WSGA for

To President Baker 

Sir: it has come to our attention that your son, 1st Lt. Clarence 
P. Baker was recently wounded in action in France. We speak 
for the student body in expressing the hope that his injury was 
not serious, and that he, like those close to all of us, will soon 
return unscathed from "over there". 



All of us remember the terrible accident that occurred this fall 
at the railroad underpass between Northampton and Amherst 
on Route 9. There is now a bill before the State Senate which

The scene changes. Gone are the 
baggy sweaters, the sloppy saddles; 
the ink from the middle finger right 
hand; the shine from the nose. Even 
the freckles have managed to disap- 
pear somehow. Cinderella has ar- 
rived, albeit it thirty minutes late. 

Prince Charming really battled it 
out during that half-hour. He thought 
of the tortures that led to tHi mo- 
ment. The decision: Shall I take a 
co-ed or have a good time? Can I 
persuade the German Club to post- 
pone their meeting so that we can 
go to the Ball? Shall I bother? 
But now he knows it was worth it.

During the past week, old 1195 was 
given a couple of those proverbial 
"shots in the arm". The first of these 
came on Wednesday last when 62 
fresh young Eager Beavers strode 
upon the campus. Coming from all 
parts of New England, these shining 
young lads prepared to embark on 
their new enterprise. Many worried 
mothers were home wondering how 
college life and their sons were get 
ting on together. One of these had th* 
following telephone conversation with 
one of the officers. 

"My son has been sent to your unit. 
and I would like to know if he will 
be taken care of." 

"Yes Madam he will". 

"I understand that Mass. State i 
a co-educational institution". 

"Yes Madam". 

"Well you know how those collegf 
girls are, I do hope that he will M 
all right." 

"Well madam you know some o!

Following this there was a per 
"Thank you Lt." and a sharp click.

Second Concert of Music Series to Feature Percy Grainger 

Percy Grainger, world renowned 
Australian pianist and composer of 
such famous pieces as "Country Gar- 
dens" and "Irish Tune from County 
Deny", will be the guest artist to be 
featured in the second of the MSC 
Concert Association music series on 
Wednesday, February 14, at 8:00 p.m. 
in Stockbridge Hall. 

Some examples of the very promis- 
ing program which Mr. Grainger will 
present are the "Toccata and Fugue 
in I) Minor" by Bach, originally writ- 
ten for organ, but to be played on the 
piano; "Prelude and Fugue in C sharp 
Minor from the Well Tampered Clavi- 
cord" by Bach, four Chopin "Etudes- 
-A flat Major, C Minor, C sharp Min- 
or, and B Minor"; "Sonata", Opus 7, 
by Grieg, which is one of the greatest 
pieces of romantic music ever written ; 
"Romance in D flat Major by Sibe- 
lius; and "Old War Horse" by Liszt. 

Percy Grainger was born at Bright- 
on, Melbourne, Australia, July 8, 
1892, and began studying music at an 
early age. By the time he was twelve 
he had earned enough from concerts 
to go with his mother to Germany for 
further musical studies. He later tour- 
ed England, Australia, South Africa, 
Holland, Scandinavia, and other Euro- 
pean countries. In 1915 Grainger 
made his American debut, and be- 
came an American citizen in 1918, 
while serving as a bandman in the

State Basketball Team Defeats Williston 
Academy And Deerf ield High After Losing One 

Opening its season against a veter 
an Amherst High School team, the 
Mass. State hoopsters were defeated 
in a fast-moving basketball game, 

Throughout the first half, the Col- 
legetowners bewildered the Streeter- 
men with an impressive exhibition of 
the figure-eight offensive play. How- 
ever, the fine defensive work of the 
starting five and the offensive strength 
of Dick Lee kept the Informals in the 
game. Thus at half time, the score 
stood at 25-15, in favor of Amherst. 

The second half showed a vast im- 
provement as Dick Lee, George Push- 
ee, Rube Allen, and Ed Rachleff com- 
bined to put away some pretty shots. 
However, the ten-point Amherst lead 
was too big a margin to overcome.

In their second start within the 
space of three days, the Mass. State 
Informals easily defeated the Willis- 
ton Academy second team, 38-19. 

The State team started off slowly, 
but soon found itself, and by half- 
time, had pulled away to a large lead. 
Dick Lee, the slick offensive forward, 
was the mainstay of the Streetermen, 
as he dropped seven baskets and suc- 
cessfully converted two foul shots 
for an impressive total of sixteen 
points. It was definitely a State field 
day as Coach Streeter substituted the 
entire squad in the game.

On Monday evening, the M.S.C. 
Collegians chalked up their most im- 
pressive win to-date, defeating Deer- 
field High, 3fi-27. 

The first half was very tightly 
played, as Dick Lee, State's nifty 
forward, managed to sink seven bas- 
kets, giving the State team 14 of the 
20 points it scored in the first half. 

The second- half was a repeat per- 
formance and the game was a nip and 
tuck affair down to the very finish 
with State finally edging out the 
Briggs-coached team by .'W-27.

advancing Russian armies. 

.... AND WEST 
On the Western front the Allies 
have made some significant p r og r e ss 
through the West Wall, especially 
southeast of Aachen. Apparently a 
major drive is developing. 

After being rushed through the 
House by a vote of 245-166, the May- 
Bailey or "work or jail" bill has 
been slowed down in the Senate. Pos- 
sibly the Senate will change the meas- 
ure completely. It is still too early 
to see what effect this bill will have 
on college students. 

Twelve university Presidents have 
asked Pres Roosevelt to delay con- 
sideration of the "highly controver- 
sial question" of universal postwar 
military training, "at least until com- 
plete victory over Germany is a- 
chieved". Among the signers of the

The W.S.G.A. Association masting 
was held in Uowker Auditorium last 
Thursday, February 1. 

At this meeting, elections were held 
for the nominating committee for the 
new Council members. The students 
elected tu the nominating committee 
were Lucille Chaput and I 'at Jennings 
from the senior class; Dot Johnson 
and Ruth Reynolds from the junior 
• lass; and I'ully Riper from the soph- 
omore class. 

The possibilities of an Eligibility 

Board to enforce the Point system in 
elections was discussed. Further dis- 
cussion on such a system will be held 
at the next Association meeting, after 

the Point System Committee has 

made a further investigation of the 
plan. Members of this committee are 
Anne Merrill, Janet Mallun, Walter 
Goering, and Lester Giles, appointed 
by the Senate and the W.S.G.A. f'.»un 
cil. (Jirls may take any proposals con 
iirning the eligibility board to this 
point system committee. 

Anne Tilton brought up again the 
idea of a separate .Judiciary Council. 
It will be voted on at a later date. 

The freshmen were given a test on 
the Hand Rook after the meeting had 

D OWLNG "Jo" Freelander, man- 
ager of bowling, reports that more 
than fifty girls have signed up for 
practice on Mondays, Thursdays, and 
Fridays from 4:00 to 5:00. A tourna- 
ment is scheduled for March. Anyone 
interested should call Jo at the Abbey. 

BASKETBALL The basketball 
teams with Jean Gould as manager 
have planned several games between 
Sororities, Independents, and Butter- 
field. They started February 7 and 
will be held through Friday, Febru- 
ary 2'.',. The captains are Edith Dov-

CepUon Of education as a growth of 
the mind and Spirit, rather than as 

a process of accumulating facts. 
Freshmen are already beginning to 
straighten out their thinking under 

nil direction, ASTRP*i to submit 

their mental manifestations to his 
correction symbols, and uppcrclass 
men to rack their imaginations for 
his Advanced l'rose Composition 
course. Although his comments on 
our wet-behind-the-ears reasoning can 
be sardonic, his students who have 
hopes of finding the kind of univer- 
sity which makes learning a liberal, 
intellectual life in itself, and who 
are glad there is much of that kind 
of education here already suffer 
quite willingly and benefit on the 
whole from any censure they receive. 
As for world happenings, Troy says 
his years in the Merchant Marine 
Strengthened his conviction that so- 
ciety should be controlled by men 
picked for their ability and intelli- 
gence, and not left to mob rule Ger- 
many he feels, will have to be de- 
prived of all but light industry, and 
during the occupation decent ralized 
politically into local groups with a 
variety of leaders, thus leaving a 
structure for democratic government 
to succeed when the occupation ar- 
mies leave. 

Furthermore, having endured bomb- 
ing raids in England and in other- 
ways seen for himself how the civil- 
ians there are paying for the war, 
Troy finds the smug anti-Rritish at- 
titude of some Americans hard to 
swallow. Our basic values, he feels, 
are closer to those of the English 
than to any other people's, and we 
cannot expect a sound peace unless 
we can sympathize with our ally. 

The College has a sincere welcome 

for Frederick Troy. Then who do 

not yet know him have something 
to look forward to. And to those who 
knew him before, it is like signs of 
sprine; to have a friend return, and 
realize that perhaps the war too 
will have an end as well as a dura-

Development of Modern Art, Subject 
of Lecture Given to German Club 

The names Picasso, Matisse, and 
Dali, exponents of modern art, usual- 
ly bring forth a laugh of derision, a 
proud comparison to a four year old's 
artistic creation, or an air of knowl- 
edge that bespeaks ignorance. For 
those who en joy. (1 the opportunity to 
attend the Herman Club lecture Jan- 
uary 18, like or dislike can he voiced 

with some degree of Intelligence. 

Professor Abbot, director of the 
Art Museum at Smith College, a 
charming as well as informative 
speaker, sought t" explain the intri- 
caciei of the "sophisticated literal" 
artists. Various slides of paintings 
and sculptures from the Medieval 
and Renaissance periods and finally 
from the 20th century offered unusual 
comparison between objective and non 
objective art. The conventional per- 
spective, interwoven with memories, 
associations, in short, the story-tell- 
ing value is omitted in modern art.

A very interesting series of slides 
followed the artist from reality, to his 
sketch hook, to his departure from re- I 
ality, showing that a scene, thought 1 
of as an abstraction, may visually as- 
sume a completely different composi- 
tion. Quite fantastic were the pic- 
tures that could be viewed right side 
up and upside down with equal a- 
mounts of reality. Several paintings 
showed the emphasis placed upon su- 
peremptiness — the insignificance of 
man in space. 

One cannot hope to know and un- 
derstand modern art completely by 
such general explanations, yet the 
interest which Professor Abbott suc- 
ceeded in stimulating can surely lead 
to increasing appreciation rather than 
mere toleration.

Dear Editor: 

I, for one, want to send a vote of 
thanks to the ASTRP's for the mar- 
velous school spirit they showed at 
the basketball game, and especially 
to Bliss and Berg for leading the 
cheers. I think that it is to be re- 
gretted that our own students did 
not take the initiative. 

At future games, let's follow the 
example set by the ASTRP's, and 
start off the cheering with the same 
enthusiasm with which it ended Wed- 
nesday night! 

Diane E. Kelton 

will be found soon, safe and we 

We .just received word of the 
deaths of Rob McEwan '44 and Al- 
bert Simpson '45. Bob was killed in 
action, and Albert died of wounds re- 
ceived in France, November 14th. We 
would like to extend the deepest sym- 
pathy of the students to the parents, 
relatives and friends of these two 
fellows. Their sacrifice can never be 
forgotten by us, nor can we forget 
them as friends and classmates. 

That's all for this week. Be back 
with more news next Thursday, and 
if anyone has heard anything about 
State students now in the service let 
us know. We're always interested.

authorizes and directs the Department 
of Public Works to eliminate the 
underpass because it is a public men- 
ace. On February <i Dean Machmer 
was present at a hearing on the bill. 
He feels that because of the large 
number of commuters and students 
at Mass. State which travels this 
road, the elimination of the under- 
pass is of great Importance to the 





The World At A Glance 

('ontinued front p<tge 3 
statement were the Presidents of 
Harvard, Princeton, Cornell, and 


Adolf Hitler delivered a gloomy 
but eloquent speech to the German 
nation on Jan. 30 — the twelfth an- 
niversary of his ascendancy to the 
Chancellorship. He proclaimed to the 
world that "Germany will fight on 
no matter where and no matter under 
what circumstances until final victory 
crowns our efforts." 

General Joseph Stilwell has been 
named Chief of all Army Ground 
Forces . . . The Ledo Road from In- 
dia to China was opened to traffic last 
week . . . The Big Three conference 
is probably going on this very mo- 
ment, possibly somewhere in the East- 
ern Mediterranean or the Balkans. 

Students often have several hour 
exams scheduled in a short space of 
time. This situation usually occurs at 
mid-semester or before holiday recess. 
This is what they have to say about 
crowded exam schedules: 
Jidge Could '4<> — Practically everyone 
has exams just before finals. I think 
these should be eliminated. 
Bea Decatur '4<i — There always 
seem to be exams before big week- 
ends or glee club concerts. Profes- 
sors could take such campus events 
into consideration. 

Marge Huff '45— It seems rather silly 
to plan an hour exam before vaca- 
tion just to prevent "cutting". 
Barbara Scannell '47 — Professors de- 
feat their own purpose by scheduling 
tests on conflicting days. A good ex- 
ample of this problem last semester 
was the economics and Spanish ex- 
ams. The tests were given on the 
same day, and the make-up exams, 
"to raise the students' marks", were 
also scheduled for the same day! 
Ruth Murray '45 — We can't do jus- 
tice to any exam, if we are crowded. 
However it seems almost impossible 
to devise a system of tests during the 
semester that would be followed. 
Anne Tilton '4fi— I think something 
should be done about this. When a 
student has more than one hour exam 
in a day, he cannot do his best. Per- 
haps some method could be worked 
out in which the different depart- 
ments are assigned exam periods. 
Suki Seltzer 'fi — I believe in having 
daily quizzes. You get a better sam- 
pling of a student's work and it is 
an incentive to study. A student is 
more relaxed when he takes such 
quizzes, and knows what the instruct- 
or expects of him. 

Buster Burley '47 — It's quite a prob- 
lem for those who have to "cram"! 

You Name It

this are the two defeats pinned on 
the Mass. State Collegians by the 
basketball team led by Bob Bremner, 
Lionel Carbonneau and singing Jim 
McCarthy. These boys are really 
something to watch. Because of this 
overflow of talent, an interplatoon 
basketball tournament under the di- 
rection of Lt. Jones and Fred Streeter 
is to be started. The platoon team 
left at the top of the pile after the 
shooting is over is to be treated to 
a steak dinner. Good luck fellows, may 
the best team win. 

There is a faint hope down at the 
Drill Hall that there is enough talent 
up here now to again start a band. 
For six months the strains of military 
music filled the campus, but due to 
old age the band had to be dissolved. 
Hut now with the new men, who 
knows, maybe the campus will again 
be filled with music. 

While on the subject of music, we 
must not forget an interesting and 
enjoyable event that occurred in the 
Mess Hall last week. It was the re- 
ward of seven months service to Dar-

second prize for Sigma lota. The 
third prize was given to North College

awards were presented to the winners 
at the Carnival Hall. 

The feature of Friday evening was 
the akating exhibition by the Spring- 
field Ice Birds, Waltzes, fancy figures, 
and a clown act were enjoyed by the 
large number of students and visitors. 
Proceeding the exhibition, every one 
went Skating to start the evening off

Mem building. Music was furnished 
by the best dance bands of the coun- 
try — on records of course. 

Splash! The Naiads presented their 

nd place 

was tied by George Pushes and Don 

" Bid Smith. The men's downhill was 
won by Donald Glazier with George 

Pushes winning second place. The

won by Sally Swift '47. The second 
place in both events, was taken by a 
Mount Holyoke representative. Glo-

the cross countrj event. 


This is an appeal from the 
faculty and administration to the 
students to stay off the streets 
and to walk only on the sidewalks. 
This is for your own safety. 
Unless students take some re 
sponsibility either a fine or a

Last week-end was one that will be 
remembered for a long time by the 
fellowa up here. Yes, the Winter Car- 
nival really provided plenty of good 
times. Beginning with the swimming 
exhibition and ending with the Ball, the 
week-end packed plenty of pleasure. 
The sculpturing done by the girls was 
truly appreciated and the winner was 
a honey. Sgt. Gormley's ski run pro- 
vided plenty of spills and thrills for 
all those who had the nerve to attempt 
a run. The Sgt. has done a swell job 
up on Thatcher Hill, and all the ski 
enthusiasts in the college owe him a 
vote of thanks. 

The Physical Training Program is 
beginning to bear the fruits of over 
six months of hard work. We well re- 
member those hot summer days on 
the Drill Field with the temperature 
up around 100. But those days of arm 
bending and back breaking have been 
turned into a program consisting of 
skiing, snowshoeing, basketball and 
swimming. Under the direction of 
smiling Joe Rogers a course in Red 
Cross Senior Lifesaving is being giv- 
en. Although the work is hard, the 
lessons learned here may prove to be 
very helpful in the future. Talking 
about Joe Rogers reminds us to men- 
tion the novel demonstration he gave 
in the pool last Monday night. A life 
raft that had been donated by the Ar- 
my Air Forces was blown up and 
stripped down by Mr Rogers. During

The Sidewalk Problem 

The unnecessary but inevitable accident last week on the main 
road has had two effects so far; the college administration has 
reiterated, strongly, its warnings to the students to walk on the 
sidewalks provided, and the attention of the college as a whole 
has been centered on the circumstances surrounding the accident 
But how long will the situation be remembered? How long will 
it be before students will again be strolling four abreast along the 
streets? The answer— they have already forgotten! They are al- 
ready walking in the street again, after a few days of caution. 
It is true that we all tend to forget unpleasant events, but we 
should be able to draw a lesson from them. We should guard a- 
gainst a repetition of last week's tragedy. We should, in short, 
walk on the sidewalk. 

Then comes the objection that the sidewalk is unfit for comfort- 
able walking, or that it is inconvenient, and also somewhat dan- 
gerous to cross the street twice in order to take advantage of a 
walk that exists onlv on the east side of the highway. Many stu- 
dents, after all, live on the west side and find it easiest to follow 
the west side of the street to or from the campus. 

The solution is obvious; a sidewalk along the west side of North 
Pleasant Street from the campus edge of Phi Sigma Kappa House 
to the far edge of the Tau Epsilon property. Is this too much to 
ask*> Is it too much to ask that the various property-holders con- 
cerned should all cooperate in an attempt to remove a really serious 
threat lo the safety of about two hundred students directly af- 
fected*' We think not. We believe that, whatever the personal im- 
plication of this statement, a sidewalk along the west side of North 
Pleasant Street has long been overdue. In spite of the fact that 
there were those who saw the danger and pointed it out (notably 
Dr. Gamble) nothing was done. It is probable that nothing will be 
done, even in the harsh light of the recent accident. 

It is true that a sidewalk would not eliminate the students' ten- 
dency to disregard rules for their own safety, but it would have 
the effect of making violations more flagrant. 

We propose, then, that the administration carry out its threat 
of enforcing the safety laws, and that the observance of the laws 
be made easier by the laving down of a sidewalk along the west 
side of the road. 


The Library Question 

In this issue the Collegian was to have presented some facts con- 
cerning the hours during which Goodell Library is open, the rea- 
sons for those hours, and the methods by which they are decided. 
At present, however, the situation is in a state of change, and the 
facts would probably be obsolete by the time this issue appears. 
But the very fact that the Collegian found it necessary to publish 
farts shows up a bad discrepancy betweeen what the students say 
and what they actually know. Griping for the sake of griping is 
not an admirable trait. A request for a change in library hours 
should be accompanied by a full knowledge of the facts and people 
concerned in fixing the hours. The facts are not secret; any student 
interested enough to gripe could be interested enough to find out 
what to gripe about by asking Dr. Alexander, President Baker, or 
Mr Wood. 

Never-Told Tales 
Once upon a time, before the pond 
was on the campus, a man lived in a 
tree. This was a good life. He made 
himself a little bamboo whistle and 
he spent his evenings playing it in- 
stead of going to the movies. He was 
the original playboy. Sometimes he 
went for a walk One day he found 
some initials framed by a rather lop- 
sided circle carved on his tree. But 
a branch had grown out at the top of 
the circle breaking it. "Aha", he said, 
"whoever did this will be the ancestor 
of all autographing juveniles and they 
shall not use only trees but tables, 
desks and walls in public places." And 
right then and there, he cast a little 
spell, which is the reason why, even 
to this day, a few of the marks-men 
can spell. Then he decided to get 
down to the heart of things and for- 
ever after this symbol was called a 
heart. So he sat under the tree and 
waited and waited. One day, out of 
the west rode a beautiful princess on 
a shining white horse. The man knew 
right away that she had carved the 
initials for him. And so they lived 
happily ever after, making the heart 
their family symbol.

Skiing, you'll soon discover, is a 
wonderful sport, if observed on the 
screen when seated comfortably in 
the theater. But to the unfortunate 
soul who finds himself possessed with 
the desire to learn to ski there are al- 
ways bigger and better slopes to fall 
down and two hundred and seven 
bones (?) to crack. And, incidentally, 
it feels like a sure way to reduce 
one's posterior. But far be it from me 
to discourage the courageous ones. 
Don't be intrigued by those gorgeous 
tans you see in the movies though. 
The closest thing you'll get to a tan 
in this burg is a wind burn — which 
is usually confined to the tip of one's 
nose. I suggest you await the spring 
and sprawl on your respective roofs 
for the enjoyment of low-flying pilots. 
So you want to ski, do you? Well — 
it will probably take a good two 
weeks to accumulate the equipment. 
You'll traipse all over looking for 
someone's boots, poles, and skis — from 
someone who has faith in you, of

Dear Editor, 

I'm sure I'm not the only one in 
the student body who has been upset 
lately over the attitude of the stu- 
dents in little things. I don't mean 
morale or spirit, which is the best in 
several years, but conduct. 

The first thing is that same old 
bone which should be picked dry by 
now, but isn't. Convocation discourtesy 
is still one of the biggest black eyes 
at this college. Two weeks ago was 
particularly distressing; for not more 
than a minute at a time was the hall 
in complete darkness during the 
slides. Students were slipping out. 
How could the speaker help but know 
what was going on? Just imagine 
yourself in the same position trying 
to give a talk and knowing 
that every minute or so, someone else 
who didn't want to hear it got up and 
slipped out. It doesn't seem possible 
that anyone could have had any press- 
ing school work to do that hour, so 
the least one could have done would 
have been to sit quietly. And 1 will 
say, that I have seen faculty trying 
to slip surreptitiously out the back 
door on several occasions. 

As a matter of fact, the freshman 
are more at fault than the upperclass- 
men. I think that is always the cese. 
They are the ones who no matter how 
interesting the speaker is, at the 
sound of the bell, will immediately 
shuffle, drop books, and stick their 
arms into coats, ready for the mad 
dash. As one looks mote toward the 
front of the auditorium there is less 
and less inattention. The juniors and 
seniors have begun to realize that 
convocation is not a weekly torture 
period. It's amazing how much one 
can learn from a convocation speaker 
if one will only go half way. 

Another complaint concerns the 
singing of our national anthem. The 
least we can do when that is being 
played or sung is to stand wherever 
we are with some semblance of re- 
spect. Everytime during the school 
year that "The Star Spangled Ban- 
ner" has been sung, late comers scur- 
ry down the aisle to their seats tak- 
ing other persons' attention away and 
losing all sense of respect for the 
song. At last week's convo, I saw a 
freshman girl frantically knitting on 
a sock and making her mouth say the 
words mechanically as she kept look- 
ing at her work and counting stitches. 
One point of respect of which we 
are probably not so much aware is our 
attitude toward the retreat of the 
A.S.T.R.P. Any student or faculty 
member who is within sight of the 
retreat when the flag is being lowered 
should stop where he is and stand at 
attention. Automobiles should stop 
and the drivers stand outside. That 
is the least we can do for the flag of 
our country. The things which I have 
mentioned aren't hard to do, but they 
just involve a little less thought for 

Sincerely yours, 
Irmarie Scheuneman '45

Convocation is a topic of concern 
to many on campus. The administra- 
tion is primarily concerned with pro- 
viding a varied and helpful program 
for the undergraduates. The students 
are often all too interested in when 
and how they can cut. This week we 
have asked the question, "How do 
you think student interest in convo- 
cation can be improved." 
Ruth Felstiner '4o — The convocation 
speakers last semester were quite an 
improvement. The speakers were good 
and appealed to us. Let's have more 
like them! 

Ruth Edmonds '40> — Many times the 
topics chosen aren't interesting to a 
majority of the students. 
Betty Boyd '46 — Let's have more im- 
portant speakers. I hear at the Uni- 
versity of Connecticut they have peo- 
ple like Lowell Thomas.

program announced beforehand.

known. Steve Hollis, also of the class 
of '44, is with the infantry at Camp 

Private Sandy Smith '46 and Pri- 
vate Dana Jost '46 are now in Eng- 
land. A recent letter told of their 
chance meeting while on leave. It was 
quite a surprise to both, for they had 
not met since leaving Amherst some- 
time ago. 

Lt. Bill Anderson '46, recently won 
his wings in the Marine Air Corps 
and is now stationed at Floyd Bennett 
Field in New York. Dave Roberts '46 
is in the Navy Air Corps and well on 
his way to winning his wings.

On Monday a communique was re- 
leased simultaneously in Washington, 
London, and Moscow announcing that 
the big three had conferred for 
eight days near Yalta, in the Russian 
Crimea. Meeting in the Summer Pal- 
ace of ex-Czar Nicholas II, Pres. 
Roosevelt, Premier Stalin, and Prim 
Minister Churchill have reached full 
accord on a program to win the war 
and prepare the way for a lasting 
peace. The Big Three intend to make 
sure that never again will "Germany 
be able to disturb the peace of the 
world". Among the decisions made 
were: (1) Germany will be split into 
three or four zones of military oc- 
cupation (2) There will be a drastic 
purge of Fascism and militarism in 
Germany (3) A Commission will be 
set up to study German reparation? 
(4) The Polish boundary will roughly 
follow the Curzon Line and the Polish 
government will be reorganized. (5) 
Joint action will assist liberated peo- 
ples in choosing their own free gov- 
ernments (6) A World Peace Organ -

Outplayed by a clever Deerfleld 
quintet, the Mass. State Collegians 
were defeated 57-27. As the score in 
itself indicates, the game turned out 
to be an overwhelming victory for the 
Deerfield Academy lads, coached by 
"Red" Ball. 

The first quarter gave little indi- 
cation of the points to come, for both 
quintets played a give and take game 
up and down the court. Lee and Swan- 
son were the big scorers for the 
Streetermen as they ran up a total of 
8 points. 

Halfway through the second quar- 

are to study and propose changee and 
advise the administration of its find- 
ings, among which has been the gen- 
eral plan. Discussions are thorough 
and forever seeking a better campus 
through finding existing faults. Out 
of this has grown a proposed plan and 
to make the plan tangible, Professor 
Armstrong has started making a mod- 
el at 1|32 inch scale primarily of the 
central campus as it is hoped it some 
day will be. This model, when com- 
pleted, will be exhibited in the library. 


You have a vital interest in the success of this poll because immediate 
action will be taken on your opinions next February 20. Therefore we urge 
you to give us your sincerest preferences by carefully filling out this form

course. This much done, you're on 
your way. It's quite a trick getting 
under way though — maneuvering skis 
and poles in such a way that your 
vision won't be permanently obliter- 
ated requires genius. From the bottom 
looking up at the skiers it seems all 
too simple. Ten minutes later you're 
still there. At this point you start 
looking nonchalant, making like you 
didn't want to go up yet anyway. 
Well, this can go on for hours, so 
it's take 'em off and plod upward. 
O.K. — so you're at the top, and this 
time you're looking down. (A horse of 
a different color). The noisy clatter 
will be your teeth and that's no truck 
rumbling by — it's your stomach turn- 
ing upside down. If there are others 
on the slope, you can just stand there, 
poised, looking like quite the profes- 
sional — a good time for meditation. 
Finally, the track looks clear and 
you're all set to go. But then, it's a 
question of closing your eyes, heading 
for the nearest tree and getting it 
over quick OR taking the hard way 
down with spins and spills winding up 
in a general mess. No matter which, 
you can have a lovely time in the 
infirmary tapping out morse code to 
the A.S.T.R.P's. But, to get back to 
the point, you're still at the top of 
the hill pondering the question. Well 
— from here on in you're on your 
own. I couldn't make up my mind so 
I went home.

It then became the custom through 
the generations for the men of the 
family to send a tree with the heart 
carved on it to their loved ones. But 
as the earth grew older and older and 
the trees grew bigger and bigger, 
they started to draw leafy hearts, in- 

During the Middle Ages one of their 
descendants sent a drawing to his 
beloved. He was such a poor artist, 
however, that she thought his leaves 
were lace. In later years, when mak 
ing a copy for her son to use, she 
put real lace around the heart. Time 
passed and the family grew and 

The best loved member of the clan, 
Rudolph Valentino, who by the time 
of his great popularity had lost track 
of the original meaning of the custom, 
sent these hearts as tokens to all the 
girls he knew. Since he knew so many, 
he decided to send them only once 
a year and it always turned out to 
be February 14. As the years passed 
the girls started to send them back 
to him. It was such a pretty custom 
that the fad spread and spread and 
the hearts and lace were called Valen 
linos. Then there was progress in the 
land, and everything became stream- 
lined — cars and people and lines. Ami 
Valentinos became Valentines. 

And so, dear children, that is how 
Valentine Hall got its name.

America Must Practice Conservation 
To Save Vital Natural Resources 

by Barbara BeiUtel *47 

There is a story in the middle west 
about an old Nebraska farmer who 
was lifting on his porch during a 
dust storm When asked what he was 
looking at so intently, he said, "I'm 
watching the Kansas farms as they 
go by." 

In like manner we Americans have 
been watching our continent go by, 
not grabbed by an alien aggressor, 

but wastefully depleted by ourselves. 
It a foreign country tries to steal a 
tiny piece of our land, the whole na- 
tion rises up. Hut we are letting mil- 
lions of tons of valuable phosphorus, 
potassium and nitrogen wash down 
our rivers each year, along with other 
constituents of the soil, and who 
cure*! You and I should! We need 
dear, clean waters and rich top soil, 
One inch of which is at least 500 years 

in the making. 

Americans have terribly misused 
this beautiful land. We are suffering 
the consequences. 

In Kansas two fields of Kaffir corn 

were observed. In the one the soil 
was bare between the rows, as is the 

common practice. On the other gran 

had been sown between the rows. Dur- 
ing B measured period of time the 
former lost 1,250 times as much soil 
■ the latter, and the water runoff 

wai 899 times as great Imagine the 

eiTect of this in stimulating flood* 
in riven below, the subsequent low- 
ering of the water table, and lilting 
causing the death of fish. Could this 
1„. one of the causes of disastrous 
floodi in the Connecticut Valley? 

Did you know that towns up the 
Connecticut River dump into it sew- 
age end chemical wastes from indus- 
tries, which towns farther down have 

to take out to make the water safe 
for drinking, and other domestic pur- 
poses? Sounds silly, doesn't it? Hen- 
is where regional planning should 
come in. This necessitates understand- 
ing the principles of conservation, 
which are based on Nature's laws. 

Did you know that the two hydro- 
electric dams on the Columbia River 
kill more salmon than all the electri- 
city they make could buy? Another 
paradox! They are evident wherever 
you are if you take time to look and 

Someone asks, "Where is the voice 
of the aroused conservation minded 
public?" There has been little pro- 
test against such waste and destruc- 
tion. Why? Became the American 
public has been brought up under an 
education system which taught 
that our natural resources are inex- 
haustible and did not teach the re- 
sults of depleting them! Many types 
of Federal and State Conservation 
Administrations have been tried with- 
out success. Voluntary organization! 
attempting to unite efforts into na- 
tion-wide movements have failed. I>e 
■tractive exploitation due to ignorance, 
selfishness and indifference still rules 
our land! The burden of the problem 
lies on education. If IfSC is interested 
in what remains of this beautiful 
country and in the continued welfare 
and happiness of her students, she 

will urge each one of them to tak< 
a course in conservation of natui i 
resources. Remember, our generation 
may be called upon to rehabilital

Due to the national situation, it 

is extremely important that all pre* 

medical students take the Medical 
Aptitude Test at this time. The t.-st 
requires approximately two hours and 
will begin at •'! o'clock on the after- 
noon of April 18, I'.M-'i, in room 114, 
Stockbridge Hall. 

The attention of all applicants 
should be called to the fact that the 
test is now one of the normal require- 
DM nts for admission to a medical 
school. Furthermore, it is extremely 
doubtful that the test will be given 
again until next year. 

A fee of one dollor and a half from 
each applicant, to be collected at the 
time the test is taken, will Ik> required, 
// you irixh to take thin test, it fa 
in* iterative that you </in i/our no mi 
to either Pr. U'oodxide at h'eruald, 
or to Pr. (Hick at Storkliridi/e withiv 
the next week. Because only the num- 
ber of tests definitely reported can 
be obtained, students who have not 
submitted their names will be unable 
to take the test. In all probability 
you will not have the opportunity 
again to take the test until next year 
•ee submit your name now!

The A.S.T.R.P. 

On another part of this page is a letter from a student enrollee 
in the Army training program at this college, a volunteer in the 
Army of the United States. He and his buddies came here for col- 
lege training of a specialized type, he came here prepared to enter 
into the spirit and the activities of the college. Now he feels that 
there is something wrong. He asks to find out what the students 
and faculty of the college think of himself and his buddies. Cer- 
tainly there is at least a hint of strained relations. Why? 

At other colleges where the same program is in effect there is 
active participation by the Army students in the extra-curricular 
and social life of the campus. Is the fault then with this college, 
or is it with the particular group stationed here? As we see it, 
both parties have a long way to go before their attitudes can be 
termed acceptable. 

First, a word to the men in uniform: 

Every Saturday before passes are issued in Army camps, the 
commanding officers remind their men that they are wearing the 
uniforms of the Army, that their conduct in public will determine 
the civilians' attitude toward the Army as a whole, and that they 
should do nothing to disgrace themselves or the Army. The same 
advice is applicable on this campus. If the A.S.T.R.P.s would re- 
member when throwing snowballs at each other, when talking in 
ranks (supposedly marching at attention), while disturbing the 
quiet of the library— if they would remember when filing into a 
building (late) disturbing classes already in session, that they are 
giving students and faculty the impression of themselves as a 
group of irresponsibles, they would perhan/ realize why there is a 
tendency to look upon them as a group apart from the rest of the 

There is inherent in any such group'an effective check on the ir- 
responsible actions of a part of the group. Discipline in this case 
cannot come from the officers in charge of the program ; it must 
come from the men themselves. Social ostracism, warnings, and, 
as a last resort, physical violence have long been common practice 
of Army groups toward offending members of the group. Similar 
group disciplne could be effected on this campus. 

As for the civilian students of the college, it might be well to 
remember that these men are here because they want to be, that 
they are not "draft-dodgers", but enlistees. For many of them, 
the ERC was the fastest way they knew of to get into the fighting 
of the war. They were chosen by the Army for special training 
because the Army thought they had the capacity to absorb and 
the ability to use extra training. In many ways they are far ahead 
of many of us when it is a question of patriotism evinced by a 
willingness to serve. They deserve not only our respect but our 
companionship (nol condeecension!) before they leave here for 
active service. Less judgement of the A.S.T.R.P. as a group and

I Kill 

hi ; 


by Don Smith and Jerry Shea 

Editor's Mail 

Dear Editor: 
1 air. writing this short letter to 
on because 1 think you can best an- 
swer my questions. For a long time, 

I have wondered whom I could ask, 

and have Anally come to the eonclu- 

sion that the best way for cadets to 
find out the answers is to have them 
printed in Th* MoMmaehueette Cul- 
hijinn. If you would publish the an- 
swers as soon as possible, 1, and I 
believe many of my fellow cadets, 
would appreciate your kind help. 

The other day 1 happened to over- 
hear two freshmen girls "catting" 
while they were walking down the 
sidewalk. The conversation went 
somewhat like this: ". . . and they're 
so young too. Just the way Bill acts 
you can tell he is only 17; and some- 
times I think he is 1">." "Ya", re- 
plied the second girl, "I'm through 
with all these 'Junior Birdmen'. I 
met the neatest Amherst fellow the 
other night. I just love his southern 
accent. He is 23 years old but I just 
love the way he walks, talks, and 
..." By that time I was out of ear- 
shot but I had heard enough to make 
me thoroughly sick. Both of the girls 
I overheard could not have even been 
18, yet they were trying to act like 
22! " 

This brings »S tO my first ques- 
tion. Do all the girls around campus 
feel M those two do? I'll have to ad- 
mit we are nothing like the old "58th" 
but we try to do our best. Some of 
us still have a feeling that the fe- 
male student body of the college still 
look down at us. Would you please 
straighten this question out? 

There is also another question that 
sticks in the minds of some of us. 
How does the faculty feel toward 
the ASTUP's? What kind, or should 
I say, what type of student are we 
classified under? l»o the professors 
like to teach army students or do 
they just do it because they have to? 
In closing I would like to ask one 
more favor to whomever may answer 
this faint plea. If you give a replj 
to this letter in a future publication, 
I wish you would give a few hints 
or suggestions on whatever we may 
do wrong. After all, college life is 
very strange to all of us, and I'm 
sure none of the cadets would mind. 
I know if it is at all possible the 
cadets will try to be a much better 
body of students. 

Sincerely yours, 

Pvt. John Warren

750 Miles To Go 

On .Monday morning American Ma- 
rines invaded the island of lwo Jima. 
only 750 miles south of Tokyo. The in- 
vaders are fighting their way inland 
against furious Japanese resistance 
and our losses are feared to be heavy. 
The island has been bombarded for 
several days by American tank forces, 
while to the north hundreds of car- 
rier planes have been blasting Tokyo. 

Iwo Jima is five miles long and a 
number of the Volcano Group. Its 
possession will give our Air Forces 
a strategic prize from which to bomb 
Metropolitan Japan. 


United States forces have liberated 
Bataan and have landed on Corregi- 
dor, the Fortress Rock in Manila Bay. 
As a result of these operations the 
Japs have been forced to retreat to 
the mountains of northern Luzon, and 
Manila Bay has been opened to the 
American Fleet. 

German Front 

Breslau, the capital of Silesia, has 
been completely encircled and is under 
seige. The main Russian drive is now 
concentrated in the southern German 
sector, near the borders of Saxony. 
The Russians are only sixty miles a- 
way from Dresden.

One thousand nine hundred and

Christ, there was washed up on a 
sandbar under Sunderland bridge, a

that his destination was M.SC. but 
the draft had blown him a little off

various forms of organic liquids 
known as medicinal alchohols, and 
wrapping his chic burlaps about his

The Outing Club has been one of the 
most active organizations on campus 
this year. Starting out last November 

with a membership drive headed by

resulted in \2-> active members, the

In a thrilling, evenly-matched has 
ketball game, the fast Amherst Col- 
lege qoitttet defeated the Mass. State 

Informal! by ■ aeors of i4--;7. Behind 

on points from Stall to finish, the 

Statesmen nevertheless, put on their 
best basketball exhibition of the sea- 
son. The game was closely played 
throughout, but the Amherst quintet 
never once relinquished their lead, 

Starting the game, the State Infor- 
mals fielded their strongest team of 
the season with Swanson and Streeter 
at both guard posts, Pushes and Lea 
at the two forward slots, and lanky 
Rube -Allen at center. The only new 
face was that of Coach Fred Streeter 
who made his first appearance of the 
season as a regular playing member 
of the Informals. Right off the bat, 
the Statesmen fell behind as the Am- 
herst quintet went into a fastbreaking 
formation to notch up two field goals 
before the Informals could find the 

The first scorer for the Streeter- 
men was center Itube Allen who drop- 
ped two baskets in quick succession 
putting the team into the thick of the 
fight. However, the Statesmen couldn't 
overcome Amherst's initial lead, and 
by tin- end of the first quarter were 
in the bucket DM 2. 

The second quarter was a repeat 
performance as the Informals vainly 
attempted to catch and overtake Am- 
herst's lead. Each and every member 
of the starting five was supreme, but 
hard luck shots and strong defensive 
playing on Lord Jeff's part kept the 
score down. By half time the States- 
men were behind 25-23. 

The second half started in the same 
fashion, with Amherst going into a 
quick scoring spree only to be halted 
by the Informals who in turn, turned 
on the heat in an attempt to even 
the score. The contest continued with 
Amherst still on top! The Statesmen 
were not to be outdone in fighting 
spirit, however; Amherst fought for 
every point! 

There was no particular star in the 
game, as the box score will show. The 
high scorer of the evening was Dick 
Lee, who added thirteen points to his 
already large total, scored in other 
trames.. Coach Streeter, hampered by 
the lack of practice, played an extreme- 
ly steady game as did Rube Allen, 
Jerry Swanson, and George Pushee. 
This was difinitely State's best show- 
ing since the star*, of the season, and 
in this sense, the game was not a 

Monday night's game marked the 
< nd of Dick Lee's appearance in the 
State lineup. Because the Army has 
first priority on all lads of 18, Dick 
will leave Mass. State. We all wish 

student-faculty tea. Immediately aft- 
erwards, the Club joined forces with 
the l-H club to sponsor a square 


Last Friday, the club held ■ sleigh 
ride which was greatly enjoyed - as

dent, Fernand Bartlett.

Continued from pug* - 

Infantry but for reasons unknown the 
desire to leap from a plane shouting 
"Ceroninio" held more adventure. To 
these nun we can only say good luck 
and happy landings. 

Hill Cardow and (lien Kitterednc a 

couple of adventure lover* who left 

the unit early in January have under 
taken a trip to sunny California. The 
boyi have reached New Mexico and 
are basing themselves quite 8 time. So 
far the only thing they seem to ha\e 
noticed are the Mexican women. 

In our travels around the campus 
we come into contact with a man who 
holds two vastly different jobs and 
does each of them well. First as a 
Professor of German where he is well 
liked by all of his students, and sec- 
ond as head of the Physical Education 
Program for the A.ST.K.I*. Yes it's 
Fred Kllert the little man with the 
muscles. Although Fritz as the boy's 
call him is not a tall rugged individ- 
ual he could often be seen on hot Sat- 
urday's running six miles with the 
ease of a track star. While a student 
here at Mass. State Mr. Ellert made 
a name for himself in the field of 
sports especially basketball. The fel- 
lows get a big kick out of him as he 
constantly carries a broad grin and a 
few words of encouragement where- 
ever he goes. 

The past week has brought us a 
new set of Cadet Officers. Although 
originally a rotation plan was to be 
used so that each man would have a 
chance to become an officer. It seems 
as if soem of those having special ta- 
lents have held many positions of 
note. Now there is only five weeks 
left many of the men who have never 
risen beyond the rank of Private won- 
der what has become of the plan. We 
hope the new men have a rotation 
plan as it would prove much better 
than the present plan.

A Definite Resemblance 

Women are like newspapers because: 
They have forms; 
Are made up; 
Have bold types; 
They always have the last word; 
Back numbers are not in demand; 
They have a great deal of influence; 
They are well worth looking over; 
You cannot believe everything they 

They carry news everywhere they go; 
They are never afraid to speak; 
They are much thinner than they used 

to be; 
Every man should have one of his 

own and not borrow one from his

"Beware Familiar Spirits" Subject 
Of Lecture Program Tuesday Evening 

John Mulholland, the world renowned magician and lecturer, will appear 
at Massachusetts State College on Tuesday evening. March tith for th.- Social 
Union Program, His lecture subject will be "Beware Familiar Spirits", a 
thoughtful and factual account of the age old belief in disembodied spirits. 
Given with s scientific, rather than a scoffing attitude, this leciure deals 
both with family ghosts and factory made spectres, and is illustrated with 
den Btrations to prove his points. 

Belief in spirits, both good and evil is as old as the human race. "Spirit- 
ism" is the modem development of the age old desire to establish contact 
with the dead. Frankly and fairly. John Mulholland discusses the amazing 
lives and spirit istic experiences of such famous mediums as the Fox Sisters.

Peace Bulletin Sent

Reverend W. Burnet Faston, Jr., re 
director, announces that he 
has received material that was re 
ferred to by the Interfaith Trio of 
speakers who were on campus, Febru-

ly by Father Fsrrell, to areas where 
all three faiths could and have worked 
together. Particular reference 
made by Father Parrel] to interfaith 
declarations for peace, and he has 
sent a number of copies of the p;: 
phlet "Pattern's Progress" to Mr. I

points which this interfaith group a- 
gncri upon as being the necessary 
basis for permanent peace. This pam- 
phlet also contains a number of state 

Etta by leaders of all three faiths. 

Father Farrell has also sent 
subsequent bulletins on pattern! of 
peace, and some material which he 
has written on compulsory pe a ce t ime

Brothers, Slads, Home, "Margery", 
and many others. Where there waa 
evidence of trickery in their seances, 
Mr, Mulholland tells what it was and 
how it was revealed. 

John Mulholland for many years 
has been ,i close student of Spiritism. 
Internationally famous as a magician, 
and author of several books, his ca- 
reer has brought him in touch with 
many noted lielievers in spirits and 
practitioners of Spiritism, as well as 
with such doughty disbelievers as t In- 
late Harry lloudini. 

The spiritualists' claim to Spirit 
return largely rests upon the demon- 
strations of their mediums. If, there 
fore, those persons can be shown to 
be frauds and tricksters through eitb 
ST the testimony of living persons or 
authentic records, the spiritualists' 
claim can be disproven. If all tin- 
prominent mediums have been proven 
to be charlatans, as is the cane, it 
seems to anyone who has studied tie- 
subject that it is hardly likely that 
one can find any present day medium 
less crooked. As very few people ha\e 
attempted, or by training are pre- 
pared, to carry out an investigation 
of mediumistic trickery, it is a public 
service to warn the public of the 
fraud connected with the entire sub

ways lead the members of bereaved 

families to look for solace. Many of 
these people attempt, through spirit- 
ism, to get in touch with their depart- 
ed in the hope of talking with them. 
It is important at this time the r e for e 
for the public to be warned against 
seeking their consolation through 
charlatans and tricksters.

an answer In the form of sn editori- 
ai. Many of u.s who have been on 
CSjnpui for almost eight months have 
wondered when the situation would 
come into the open. During the sum- 
mer there were oiiiy a few students 
around, and the men in the unit, being 
new, did not notice too much the 
attitude of these students nor the 
attitude of some of the faculty. Hut 
when the fall term began we could 
see plainly how a good many people 
around here felt. It was not pleasant 
to march in ranks and be the point of 
sly remarks thrown by the students. 
We could have always taken these 
'•clever" characters and thrown them 
into the pond or inflicted bodily harm 
on them, but instead we laughed 
things off. 

When the freshmen had completed 
their period of hazing and were pre- 
paring to hold their annual parade 
on the Amherst College campus they 
did not hesitate to ask for and get 
the use of our thirty piece band. 
Winn preparations wire underway for 
the Military Hall, countless signs be- 
gan to appear in Lewis and Thatcher 
Halls inviting the men to attend par- 
ties at the various sorority houses. 
Of course some of the girls did not 
want dates for the Hall, they were 
just being friendly. But now walk up 
to the bulletin board; do you see any 
invitations from the girls at Mass.

Historical Present 

N. B. This is an editorial that we are anticipating- by ten years. 

Once, during the war years, when soldiers were stationed on 
this campus, several girla felt, and rightly so, that the men in 
uniform were socially ignored by the civilian students. Unable 
to convince others that something should be done to make the 
soldiers* stay here a pleasant one, the girls took it upon them- 
selves to make the soldiers feel more at home. The only place that 
they came into contact with the men was at the college dining 
hall, BO they started talking to the men there. Of these girls, two 
were married and one was engaged. Nobody thought it unusual 
that they should, by talking to the soldiers, try to do what the 
campus as a whole had failed to do. 

One day. then Assistant Dean of Women ate her evening meal 
at the college dining hall, contrary to her custom. She saw 
female students and male soldiers sitting at the same table, as 
was their custom. She was. to put it mildly, horrified. She took the 
names of those girls, and the next day each of them received a 
summons to come to her office. She called them, to put it mildly, im- 
moral. She told them that if they "behaved themselves" in the 
future, nothing would come of their interview and nobody need 
ever know the consequences of their attempt at friendliness.

Having just survived the laborious 
ordeal of dish-washing, I find it appro- 
priate to expand on its pros and cons. 

It may be of some interest to pro- 
spective wives (there's still hope) and 
dutiful husbands to be (new ones are 
chivalrous). My years of experience 
with domestic chores have left me 
with a dire foreboding of the institu- 
tion of marriage with its household 
duties and so the succeeding para- 
graphs express the feelings of one 
who is extremely fond of paper plates, 
dish-washing machines and the like. 
Oh! How the clouds of gloom roll 
around when the order of the day is: 
"Do the dishes!" The fond parents 
hovering overhead, at best you can 
do nothing but mutter at the injustice 
of it all. And there you're left con-

Thus, through the original misunderstanding of a mem-j Continued on page A 

ber of the administration, rumors were started that grew by 

leaps and bounds, as rumors have a way of doing among members 

of a small group, as the college was then. Because a few girls felt 

the responsibility of the whole campus toward the soldiers, they 

were described as 'going to any lengths to get a man". (Remember 

that three, at least, definitely "had their men" already.) 

It is hard to believe that the administration of this college could 

have been so dictatorial in enforcing prudish standards as to have 

over-looked the larger issue that had been the cause of the girls' 

harmless action. But it is true that where the students were lacking 

in consideration for the men in uniform and failed to regard them 

SB other than intruders on the campus, the officers of the college 

also failed to make any effort for the soldiers' social welfare. 

It is to be hoped that if ever a similar situation arises in the fu- 
ture, the college administrators will not discourage similar «t-i Wormhood| ,, ayson) and Moore! 

tempts at social unitv by the few if the many again fall down on i other members of the class who took

women in the service of Uncle Sam. 
Your scribe hopes that any readers 
will turn in all information that would 
be of interest. We would also like to 
hear from some of you in the service

Last year the college was censured 
becaust it did not display sufficient 

interest toward the "58th" as a whole. 
Several letters appeared in the Colic 
gian in regard to this matter. How 
ever, no organization on campus took 
upon itself the correction of this mis- 

This year in spite of certain it l- 
dentS and faculty members, a few of 
u.s have attempted to alter these con- 
conditions, but our efforts are slowly 
being trampled upon by those self 
righteous persons who think that our 
■>nly motive is "to get B man". We 
have received a "stab in the back", so 
to speak, and have been reproached 
unjustly, we believe. 

If any of the boys feel that v.e have 
been, as we were called, "unladylike, 
immoral, boisterous, and rude", simply 
because we have tried to be sociable 

toward you, we apologize However, 

we hope you feol BS WC do. that our

Cologne and Duesseldorf, both on the

German resistance, the Allies would 
drive on into the center of the Reich 
to meet the Russian armies.

The Bandwagon 
At the Crimea Conference it was 
decided that only those nations who 
were at war with the Axis before 
Manh 1. 1945 could attend the San 
Francisco Peace Conference in April. 
As s result several nations have de- 
cided at the last minute to get on the 
bandwagon. The first was Turkey, 
who on Friday declared war on Ger- 
many and Japan. Egypt followed on 
Saturday, but in the process the Pre-

finally, on Monday Syria followed suit 
and declared war on Germany and

Drag up a chair, my dear, and let 
us take down our back hair. "Many of 
us, faculty and students, are working 
hard to bring about a more social 
life; but in addition to the disadvan 
tag* °f limited means, we are obliged 
to work against a far more sefkNU 
trouble, — we encounter a lack of in- 
terest anvmg a portion of the stude 
themselves. It may seem strange thai 
such a state should exist; it may !>• 
natural, for man is often blind to bi> 
best interests. We suppose it exi-' 
to B certain extent in every collegi 
but in a college where there is 
large number of students it is not B] 
parent, for among the many, it - 
eas\ to find many who are intere 
in such affairs. Being a smaller 
lege we do miss the support of this 
other element. To make an affair 
success, we must have the hearty 
operation of every man." 

We found this editorial in the l' 1 ' 
Index under the title of "Disinterest 
Students". Does it sound as familiar 
to you as it does to us? How man; 
US know when and where the bask- 
ball team played and what's

Margaret Hamlin, Placement Officer 
Started With Agriculture As Career 

Outing Club Officers 

In a busy domain over the Dean's in country where one doesn't s. , ■ 
Office, invisible to tits preoccupied eo- house in days of riding. When 

eds who change their programs and 

fill out excuses below, Margaret P. 
Hamlin, Placement Officer for Women, 
maneuvers the dozens of phone calls, 
letters, and interviews which assure 
those coeds of the jobs that will apply 
their "college knowledge" to business 
and world problems later. Just to 
watch her juggle two or three matters 
at once with a deft common sense, 
sets a goal for future business women 
which only real effort will attain. 
Miss Hamlin's own undergraduate 

efforts were bent in a different direc- 
tion — she majored in geology at Smith 
College, to which she came by way 

of Pittsfieid and Easthampton High 

School. Agricultural courses drew her 
to M.S.C. as a special student, and 
slu was soon placing Stockhridge wom- 
en in farm positions. This job grad- 
ually grew into her present one as 
Placement Officer, which is now, in 
wartime, taking her full time all year. 
The Berkshire* are not the highest 
hills. Miss Hamlin knows. An enthu- 
siastic horsewoman, she has spent 
four summers in the Canadian Rock 
ies, and made one especially fine 
trail trip of \'.V2 miles on horseback, 

a camp 

mi is were not filled with work, she 
also made two trips to Europe, and 

hils !,,,, 'i "D fishing trips to many 
parts of Canada. \'o w.mder she can 
pick the right girl to make 

Many of State's alionnae owe their 
present success in part to Margaret 
Hamlin's careful guidance. Most of 
US here now have enjoyed one of the 
varied summer jobs she handles. The 
college is fortunate to have in its 
kind, sensible Placement Officer such 
a firm wedge in the door of the great- 
er work its students are preparing for.

Massachusetts State College will 
play host to several thousand players, 
alumni, and friends of the high 
schools participating in the 18th an- 
nual Small High School Basketball 
Tournament which will be held here 
March 7. 8, 9, and 10. Schools which 
will play in the tournament are: Athol 
High, Hopkins Academy, Amherst 
High School, Ludlow High, St. Jo- 
seph's High, South Hadley High, 
Searles High, and Turners Falls. 

Admission prices for each night will 
be as follows: General Admission 50 
cents. Reserved seats $1.20, Service- 
men Free. Reserved seat tickets will 
be on sale at MSC, telephone 900, 

The preliminaries will be played on 
Wednesday and Thursday nights and 
are arranged as follows: on Wednes- 
day, Athol vs. Hopkins and Amherst 
vs. Ludlow, on Thursday, St. Joseph's 
vs. South Hadley and Searles vs. Tur- 
ners Falls. The semi-finals in these 
contests will be played on Friday and 
the finals on Saturday. Winners in 
this tournament are not to be con- 
fused with sectional champions, as 
the object of these meets is to promote 
sportsmanship, not championship. 

Although the college is to be host 
to these teams, it is in no way re- 
sponsible for their selections. Teams 
are selected by the members of the 
board of directors which is composed 
of principals from surrounding schools 
Massachusetts has five men affiliated 
with the board, but with no influence 
in selection. These men are Larry 
Briggs. "Kid" Gore, Fred Street! r. 
Donald Ross and Tommy Fck. Larry 
Briggs is in charge of arrangements 
made here at the college. 

In connection with these tourneys. 
the board of directors offers a scholar- 
ship which is awarded to some out- 
standing player in the tournament. In 
previews years a good percentage of 
the recipients have chosen MSC as 
the college to attend. Recipients are 
allowed to choose any school which is 
recognized by the conference. 

Teams for the tournament are chos- 
en from a range of seventy-five miles. 
Eligible for competition are those 
schools whose enrolment is under BOO. 
The tournament was started in 1928 
in the Drill Hall by "Kid" Gore with 
the intention of giving the small high 
schools a chance to display their 
athletic prowess. 

Winding up the season with wins 
over Williston and Deerfield Acade- 

hecause it avenged a previous defeat 
In the first game of the week a 
gainst the Williston "seconds", the 
Informals easily set the Academv lads 
hack 40-22. The Williston team was 
far outclassed as the Informals quick- 
ly went ahead, and by half time were 
out front 22-l.'i. In the second half, 
Coach Streeter used his reserves with- 
out restraint, but still the "seconds" 
were unable to take the Infor- 
mals. The final score wound up with 
the Informals on top, 40-2J. 

The big scores for State were Rach- 
leff and Falvey who tossed seven 
points each, while Weinstein and Al- 
len accounted for six apiece. Call, 
visiting center was high man with 
nine points. 

In the last game of the season, the 
Informals defeated the Deerfield A- 
cademy "seconds" 89-29. This last tilt 
was marked by extremely close play, 
with the Informals finally coming out 
on top. The scores for State were: 
Rube Allen, 11 points; George Pushee, 
10 points; Jerry Swanson, 5 points; 
Jim Falvey, I points; Ed Rachleff, 1

■ one thing, "I »o the pro

feelings These are the answers:

There is a fair pe cei tarre of i ■

these WOttld do well in s iy i'm c- ■■•■ 
I am convinced that for most of the 
boys the program Is very valuable, 
in terms both of practical (rail 
and of mental development. The in 
Struetor finds that teaching the Acer- 
is a much more Strenuo IS business 
than teaching a regular College class: 
and results in terms of facts learned 
are sometimes a little disappointing. 
The explanation largely boils down 
to the fact that it is an Army Pro 
gram. The class schedule is very full, 
and thus limits time for study. There 
is also the matter of reaction to a 
regimented program. It is the old 
Army game to do what you are told 
to do if someone is there to watch 
you do it. 

I have noticed that the Acers have 
not taken part in our own campus

there are some students who do well

Acers' Basketball 
Winners Get Steak 

With the semi-finals of Wednesday 
night having determined the two top 
A.S.T.R.T. teams, the finals of their 
basketball tournament will be played 
Monday night. At this time, the win- 
ning teams will fight for top honors 
—and, incidentally, the steak dinner 
which goes to the winner. 

Over a period of three weeks, fif- 
teen teams have participated in this 
elimination tournament. Those teams 
who lost in the first round play a con- 
solation tournament, the prize in this 
case being hamburgers. 

Last Tuesday night, the first half 
of the semi-finals was played, with 
the Mighty Seven, representing the 
second platoon, against the Achers, 
representing the 15th Platoon. The 
Gripers, representing the first platoon, 
played against the Mustangs, repre- 
senting the seventh platoon, to bring 
the semifinals to a close.
